Lochinvar Water and Wastewater Upgrades

Work in Lochinvar

Lochinvar has been identified by local and state government as an urban release area. Suitable land has been identified for rezoning in conjunction with the implementation of the Maitland Local Environment Plan (LEP) 2011.

Hunter Water is currently planning and installing water and wastewater infrastructure to service future land developments and population growth. Over the next 35 years up to 12,000 more connections to Hunter Water services may be required. This includes up to 6,100 new connections in Lochinvar, 1,300 in Greta and 7,500 in Huntlee.

New Water Main

Hunter Water is installing a new water main, 3 kilometres in length, between Winders Lane and St Helena Close, Lochinvar.

Construction will begin in mid September 2016 and is scheduled to be completed by January 2017.

The Community Update and location map, which was posted to residents near where the construction will occur, is available here.

New Wastewater Pump Station and Main

Hunter Water will soon begin upgrading the wastewater (sewer) network to accommodate the future growth predicted for Lochinvar and nearby suburbs. This upgrade will include construction of a new wastewater pumping station and sewer main to transfer wastewater to the treatment works at Farley. This project, estimated at $7.4 Million, is scheduled to start construction in early 2017.

The new wastewater pump station will be constructed on Hunter Water's land on the northern side of the New England Highway near the Station Lane intersection. The new sewer main, approximately 6kms in length, will run in parallel to the existing sewer main, following and crossing under the New England Highway near Kyle Street Lochinvar.

New Water Pump Station

A new water pump station at the corner of New England Highway and St Helena Close has been completed. The pump station will become operational following commissioning of the new water main, scheduled for January 2018.
