City of Gold Coast is conducting a condition assessment program of the sewerage network which includes visual inspection of maintenance holes, Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) inspection of sewer mains and potential cleaning.

The City commenced this proactive inspection program in 2013-14 and is committed to inspecting the entire gravity sewer network. Condition assessment of the gravity sewer network is vital in determining a renewal and repair program for subsequent years.

Inspection of the network is conducted by opening maintenance holes for inspection, then sending a remote camera into the sewer network to inspect its condition. Although your sewer service will not be impacted, customers may occasionally notice a truck temporarily accessing manholes in roadways, verges or parkland when attending to this work.

In instances where the City’s infrastructure is located within private property, entrance notices will be supplied to the occupant.
