Tanya Davies MP, State Member for Mulgoa today announced that Sydney Water’s contractor, Downer, will be upgrading the wastewater pumping station at the corner of Kukundi Drive and Alston Street, Glenmore Park. This work is part of the SewerFix Program to improve the wastewater system and TO protect public health and the environment.


Work is planned to start on Friday 20 March 2015.  The work will take about 10 weeks to complete, weather permitting. Work hours are from 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday and from 8am to1 pm on Saturdays if required.


The work involves:


  1. Setting up a site office and site activities within the fenced perimeter,
  2. installing a new back up diesel generator to provide temporary power supply to the station when necessary. The back-up generator will be constructed on the eastern side of the station and will be housed in a weather proof acoustic enclosure to minimise noise impacts,
  3. excavating and constructing a concrete pad to support the generator,
  4. installing a temporary generator to keep the station operational while the back-up generator is being installed, and
  5. removing three trees to allow space for the concrete pad and backup generator to be constructed and for easier access during maintenance.

A Review of Environmental Factors (REF) has approved the removal of the 3 trees (Callistemon and Melaeuca species) from within the site. Downer is currently in discussion with the Tree Preservation section at Penrith City Council to plan the removal.


Residents and businesses have been notified about the work. They may notice an increase in personnel and vehicles, dust, and temporary construction noise from vehicles, equipment and deliveries.


This work will not affect water or wastewater services.


Sydney Water and its contractors will make every effort to minimise any impact this work may have on the community.
