The utility has been using sliplining to reline and rehabilitate to rehabilitate manholes on 4.4 km of the Williamstown Main Sewer between Pasco Street, Williamstown and Scienceworks in Spotswood.
The project has involved the installation of 800 m of 525 mm circular sections, 3.6 km of 1,050 mm by 750 mm ovoid sections, at depths of 8–15 m.
Relining activities are currently taking place on manholes 1–6 and 22–23, while grouting and reinstatement activities are underway at manholes 7–21 and 24–28.
