What's this project all about?
The Latrobe sewer network lacked the capacity to manage wet weather flows, as indicated by a number of unplanned overflows occurring from manholes to private property, including within the grounds of the Latrobe Primary School.
Latrobe also has one of the highest growth rates in north-west Tasmania, with significant residential development in the south and south-east of the town, which will further increase the load on the Latrobe sewer infrastructure.
Through planning and investigation, the following key pressure points and upgrade stages were identified:
Stage 1 – Thomas Street and Hamilton Street
Stage 2 – James Street and Reibey Street
This project aims to remove overflows from key problem areas, limits and defers capital expenditure. The upgrades would address overflow issues in the current locations:
- 23 Lewis Street (Primary School) (Stage 1)
- 151 Percival Street (Stage 1)
- 29 Reibey Street (Stage 1 and Stage 2)
