Sewerage pump station program

  • Project typeSewer
  • Project scheduleOngoing
  • Contractor nameGCISolutions
Maintenance hole cover

We operate and maintain 535 sewerage pump stations across the city. The pump stations transfer sewage from low-lying areas, so it can continue its journey to a treatment plant via the network of sewer pipes.

Sewerage pump stations are mostly located underground (consisting of wells, pumps and associated pipes) with access provided through ground level maintenance holes. An above ground electrical cabinet houses all the circuitry required to operate the pump station.

We regularly maintain, clean and inspect our pumps stations. We also deliver additional work to ensure they continue to operate efficiently and effectively into the future.

Wet well refurbishments

  • Remove the existing wet well liner
  • Undertake concrete repairs with high build epoxy mortar / localised grouting
