A healthier kanamaluka/Tamar Estuary

A healthier kanamaluka/Tamar Estuary

The Margaret Street Sewer Diversion Project:

Phase one of upgrades to infrastructure to improve the health of the kanamaluka/Tamar Estuary has begun.

TasWater has engaged Latrobe-based engineering firm BridgePro to install a new underground diversion chamber which will improve management of combined sewage and stormwater flows to minimise the risk of overflows during rain events.

This major construction project will improve the health of the kanamaulaka/Tamar Estuary, which will have positive outcomes for the environment and the community.

The project is phase one of upgrades to reduce sewer overflows to the kanamaluka/Tamar Estuary and is a $17 million project on behalf of major funding partners: the Australian and Tasmanian governments, the City of Launceston and TasWater.

It is one of many projects to be delivered under the Tamar Estuary River Health Action Plan (TERHAP). This is a $129.2 million plan recognising that the kanamaluka/Tamar Estuary is an important ecological and social environment that needs protecting.

TERHAP is an initiative of the Tamar Estuary Management Taskforce (TEMT) and the Launceston City Deal, to improve the health of kanamaluka/Tamar Estuary. TERHAP is also jointly funded by the major partners listed above.
