Our water network handles billions of litres of water every year. We regularly check our wastewater system for damage using CCTV. When we find cracked, collapsed or damaged sections, we may need to dig to repair them. We replace aged and damaged wastewater pipes, valves and maintenance holes to improve the wastewater system in all areas of Greater Sydney.
Our wastewater system includes a network of over 25,000 kilometres of pipes. These range from 100mm to 900mm in diameter.
The system also includes structures like maintenance holes, lamp holes, junctions and reflux valves.
This large network of wastewater pipes and structures is underground, beneath roads, backyards and buildings. It is subjected to ground movement, root invasion and vibration, which ultimately take their toll.
We regularly check our wastewater system for damage using CCTV. When we find cracked, collapsed or damaged sections, we may need to dig to repair them.
We complete thousands of jobs to repair our wastewater network throughout Sydney, the Illawarra and the Blue Mountains every year. These repairs keep our wastewater system operating effectively and help protect the environment and public health.
When working on private property, our contractor will prepare a home plan with the property owner or resident as a first step.
A home plan is a written agreement between our contractor and the property owner or resident that is put in place before any work starts.
After the home plan is done, the work usually takes a few days. However, it may take longer if the job is more complex. The work involves:
After we finish restoring the site, we'll ask the property owner or resident to sign the home plan to say that the work has been completed as previously agreed.
