CCTV camera work on Upper Hunter Shire Council’s sewer pipes is currently taking place between 7.30am to 5.30pm in areas of Scone to help plan our maintenance, sewer pipe renewal and relining schedules.
Alan Fletcher, Council’s Director of Infrastructure Services said this work will assist Council in keeping the sewer mains clear and help protect properties from future sewer system interruptions.
“Work includes the cleaning of sewer mains with designed ‘pressure jetting’ equipment which is used universally among water authorities.
“This procedure can create an air pocket, causing a backflow of water and it can remove water from air traps causing odour to emanate from domestic drainage,” Mr Fletcher said.
Work is currently being undertaken in the following areas of Scone: Satur Road, Aberdeen Street, Hill Street, Guernsey Street, Kingdon Street, Liverpool Street, St Aubins Street, Susan Street, Parker Street, Mount Street, Forbes Street, Kelly Street and Eveleigh Court.
All affected areas should receive a letter delivered by the Contractors before work commences in your area.
Work is planned to conclude on Monday 24 June, 2016.
