Hallett Cove Wastewater Network Upgrade

Hallett Cove Wastewater Network Upgrade

What is the project?

SA Water, through its appointed contractor, Leed Engineering and Construction, is undertaking an upgrade to the Hallett Cove Wastewater Network. The upgrade consists of primary works at wastewater pump stations at Capella Drive and Reliance Road in Hallett Cove.

The Sewer Pump Station upgrades includes:

  • Construction of a new concrete wet well equipped with submersible pumps
  • Installation of new gravity drain pipework and manholes
  • New above-ground valve installations and a below-ground pumping main to connect to the existing pumping main
  • New switchboard and associated electrical and control elements
  • A new generator (Reliance Road Wastewater Pump Station (WWPS))
  • Ancillary pipework and building, civil and site works.

The construction of a new pipeline alongside a City of Marion bicycle path (between Tickera Court and Weerab Drive), crossing Capella Drive is also required.

Where is it happening?

Capella Drive WWPS is located on the corner of Capella Drive and Rupara Court in Hallett Cove and Reliance Road WWPS is located adjacent to the Hallett Cove Beach Railway Station car park (near the bottom tennis court of the Hallett Cove Beach Tennis Club).

As part of the construction works Leed Engineering and Construction will establish a small site compound at the existing pump station locations. Temporary fencing will house site offices for the construction crew and provide secure off-road storage for key equipment and materials.

Why is it important?

Due to growth in the catchment area the risk of overflows within the network has increased as both Capella Drive and Reliance Road pump stations are now under capacity to deal with current flows.

By undertaking these works, SA Water will ensure the performance and future capacity of its wastewater network, providing additional network capacity to support future growth and development in the area.

How long will it take?

Site mobilisation commenced in mid-February. The project is anticipated to run until September 2016. The hours of work will be 7am to 7pm Monday to Saturday. Should Sunday or night work be required, Leed Engineering and Construction will provide local residents with advanced notice.

What can I expect?

SA Water and its contractors are committed to keeping construction impacts to a minimum. However you may experience the following:

  • Noise and dust from construction equipment, vehicle movements and material handling activities.
  • Traffic management and temporary fencing around the work site for the safety of workers, motorists and pedestrians.
  • Some removal of vegetation is required to facilitate the construction of a new pipeline.

Where can I get more information?

Leed Engineering and Construction’s Community Engagement Team will be in contact with site neighbours as the works progress.

In the meantime if you have any questions regarding the project, please contact the SA Water's Project Team on 1800 812 362 or email project@sawater.com.au.
