Project update: future sewer connection at Point Lookout
Construction of the new wastewater treatment plant at Point Lookout is complete, with commissioning now underway. With capacity to service more than twice the number of people than who currently visit the township during its peak holiday period, the new plant is a welcome asset, particularly those who are not currently connected to the sewerage system.
Detailed design of the associated sewerage system is underway, with the three-year, $5 million construction program expected to start in 2017-18 financial year.
Community engagement is planned for early 2017 as part of the design process, with the goal to provide the most efficient design while minimising impact on the community.
More information will be provided to residents and property owners in coming months.
For those properties currently using septic systems and located in an area with a sewer running past, there is now capacity to connect to the network. Contact Council on 3829 8999 for more information about how to connect.
