• Work now complete on $17.5 million infill sewerage project in West Busselton
  • Project allows 381 residential lots to connect to the central wastewater system

The State Government's Infill Sewerage Program will allow the owners of 381 residential lots in West Busselton to benefit from a connection to the central wastewater system.

Water Minister Mia Davies said the Water Corporation had invested $17.5 million on the infill sewerage project in Abbey and Broadwater in Busselton, which was completed this month.

"The completion of this infill sewerage project is great news for local residents, as infill sewerage provides social and environment benefits for the community," Ms Davies said. 

"Wastewater from these lots can now be carried direct through a system of buried pipes and pump stations, to a central treatment plant for processing and disposal.

"This will eliminate the need for about 381 septic tanks which will help protect the environmentally sensitive Geographe Bay area.

"I would like to thank the community for their patience and co-operation during the construction of this important infrastructure for West Busselton."

Residents in Abbey and Broadwater will soon receive notification about connection to the system from the corporation.

The Infill Sewerage Program has provided more than 93,000 households in metropolitan and regional Western Australia access to the central wastewater system, reducing the impact on the environment.
