Castletown lots connected to central wastewater system

A multi-million dollar project connecting 123 Castletown lots to the central wastewater system has been completed.

Water Corporation Great Southern regional manager Adrian Stewart said works began on the Infill Sewerage Program in April 2018 and were completed in early August.

Property owners in Castletown will soon receive a letter advising them how to connect to the system, which will eliminate the need for septic tanks and leach drains..

“We would like to thank the community, local businesses and Shire of Esperance for their patience during the work,” Mr Stewart said. 

“The Infill Sewerage Program aims to reduce potential health and environmental issues associated with septic tanks and leach drains by providing these households with a connection to the central wastewater system.”

The $3.1 million ‘Esperance 15B project’ was funded as part of the state government’s Infill Sewerage Program.

Water Corporation project supervisor Rob Carr engaged 13 local businesses to work on the infill sewerage project.

The corporation donated leftover construction materials to the Esperance Men in Sheds and two park benches to Dixon Park to thank the community for their support during the construction of the project.

The Water Corporation will complete ongoing maintenance on all new wastewater pipes.
