Blamey Street Water Bore Pump Station – Avenell Heights

A planned refurbishment at Blamey Street Water Bore Pump Station will be undertaken this month and will include:

  • Pump removal from the station for overhaul and refurbishment
  • Cleaning of the bore screens to ensure the pumps flow is optimal
  • Flushing of the station’s pipework to clean out any discoloured water from the refurbishment process
  • CCTV and station condition assessment
  • Pump re-instated and brought back online

The station pumps to a treatment plant, so there will be no changes to the water supply in the area.

There will be some noise pollution caused during the cleaning of the station’s screens.

This operation will be conducted for one day, between 8 am and 4 pm.

Neighbouring residents will be advised a week prior to this operation beginning.
