07 Jun Public Notice – Sewer Manhole Inspection Walgett
Walgett Shire Council wishes to advise residents commencing Tuesday, 15th June 2021, inspections will be carried out on all the sewer manholes within Walgett.
The purpose of this work is to establish the current state of council’s infrastructure in order to develop and plan short and long term maintenance program to increase the lifespan of the assets.
These inspections will also allow Council to get an indication of what work is required to eliminate all infiltration of stormwater into the manholes which was apparent during the recent heavy rainfall event.
Council’s Contractor does not need to enter your house and you do not need to be at home while work is carried out, however they will need to access your property if there is a manhole located. We request that the manhole in your property are left unobstructed for the duration of this project.
If there is a manhole in your property, an impending work notice will be left at your property at least 24 hours with the planned date of inspection.
These works will be carried out over approximately 1 week and Council apologises for any inconvenience caused to residents during this time.
Should you require further information regarding these works please contact Abhi Suwal, Council’s Water & Sewerage Project Officer on 0458 279 877.
