Galiwin'ku sewerage infrastructure upgrades

Power and Water is extending the gravity sewerage system in Galiwin’ku (Elcho Island) by approximately 1.2km.

The sewer extension will allow for the proposed Health Centre facility to be connected to the new system.

The new gravity sewer system will allow for future development of the Community and the expansion into new undeveloped areas.

In addition to this work, the Police Station and Police housing development will be connected to the new gravity sewer system. They are currently connected to a privately owned and operated sewer pump station. This system will be decommissioned once the new gravity system is in place.

The project is expected to be completed in the 2014/2015 financial year.
