THE Infill Sewerage Program has allowed 410 residential lots in Dawesville to benefit from a connection to the central wastewater system.

Dawesville MLA Kim Hames said the Water Corporation invested $22.4 million on the infill sewerage project, known as Dawesville 4A, 5A and 1B, which was completed in September.

“The completion of this infill sewerage project is great news for local residents, as it provides both social and environment benefits for the community,” he said.

“The aim of infill sewerage is to reduce the risk to public health and the environment by capturing and treating wastewater in a modern and safe way.

“Wastewater from these lots can now be carried direct through a system of buried pipes and pump stations, to a central treatment plant for safe processing and disposal.”

Minister for Water Mia Davies said the State Government had recently announced a $50 million extension to the Infill Sewerage Program, which would include a project in the nearby suburb of Halls Head.

“The next stage of infill sewerage in the Mandurah area will enable 233 residential lots in Halls Head to connect to the central wastewater system,” Mr Hames said.

Residential lots bounded by Cobblers Street to the south, Vanessa Road to the north, Nerine Street to the west, and Merlin Street to the east will be included.
