Water Corp uses trenchless to reline pipes

Water Corporation will use Trenchless Technology to refurbish wastewater pipes in two Perth suburbs.

The AU$2.6 million project, in Maylands and Bayswater, is part of an ongoing program to reline and refurbish wastewater pipes throughout Western Australia.

Water Corporation said it will use trenchless methods to reline the pipes where possible, which avoids the need for excavation to access the pipes, limiting social disruptions, and extending the useful life of the pipes by at least 50 years.

Water Corporation General Manager Assets Delivery Mark Leathersich said “Around 2.3 km of wastewater pipe along Neville, Leake and King William streets in Bayswater, and Woodhouse Rd in Maylands will be refurbished over the next three months.

“Residents may notice an increase in activity along the pipeline route, however traffic management will be in place at all times and disruption will be kept to a minimum.”

Water Corporation said it planned to consult with residents and provide regular updates before work begins.
