Hunter Water commenced construction works on the Adamstown wastewater system upgrade in November 2011 with works completed December 2012.
This work will reduce the frequency of wet weather sewage overflows providing benefits for the community and local environment.
The work involved building a new wastewater pumping station at West End Park on Glebe Road Adamstown. A network of new wastewater pipes in the residential streets of Adamstown takes wastewater flows to the pumping station. The flows are then pumped through new pipes in Victoria Street and Lockyer Street to a less congested part of the existing wastewater network loacated beneath Merewether Golf Club.
As part of the Newcastle Wet Weather Transport System upgrade, a 1.3km pipeline was constructed in late 2006 from beneath the Merewether Golf Course to the Burwood Beach WWTW.
