Sewer lines in Gloucester will be the focus of MidCoast Council’s closed circuit television investigation program over the next three months.
The sewer line investigation program aims to correctly map the sewer network, identify potential problems so they can be addressed, and undertake periodic cleaning of the mains.
“This type of investigation is important to the ongoing maintenance of our assets. It allows us, through the use of CCTV to identify potential problems and ensure they are resolved,” Council’s Director of Water Services, Brendan Guiney explained.
“This investigation program also allows us to document the condition of pipes and determine where maintenance is most needed – just because our sewer pipes are out of sight doesn’t mean they are out of our minds.”
The investigation work does not impact on services to homes, however to conduct the tests contractors working for council may need to gain access to some properties within the testing area. These property owners will be contacted directly by MidCoast Council’s Water Services staff.
Anyone who would like further information about the sewer line investigation work can contact MidCoast Council’s Water Services team on 1300 133 455.
