Wyee Sewer Transfer Scheme

Background

The $36 million Wyee Sewer Scheme has recently provided 400 properties with access to the reticulated sewer network for the first time with the capacity for up to 2750 new homes in the future.

However, all wastewater from the new scheme is currently being transported from the Karagi Street pump station at Wyee to Dora Creek wastewater treatment works via tanker trucks.

In order to connect the newly built Wyee Reticulation System to Dora Creek wastewater treatment works, Hunter Water is building a new sewer transfer main and pump station.

What we’re doing

Our priority is to stop transporting the wastewater out of the Karagi Street pump station via tanker trucks as soon as possible. Therefore, the transfer system will be built in two stages:

  • Package A: involves the construction of a 2.5 km pipeline between the Karagi Street pump station (which will be upgraded), and a new pump station to be built at 32-34 Wyee Road.
  • Package B: involves the construction of a 6.7 km pipeline from 32-34 Wyee Road, connecting to Dora Creek wastewater treatment works via the existing network at Morisset.

Project timeline

  1. April 2022: Construction is expected to start on Package A
  2. Mid-2022: Construction is expected to start on Package B
  3. Early 2023: Package A to be completed (weather permitting)
  4. Mid-2023: Package B to be completed (weather permitting)
