• $15.2 million suite of upgrades to wastewater system in Bertram, Parmelia and Orelia now complete
  • Upgrades will cater for growth in the City of Kwinana 

The Liberal National Government has completed a $15.2 million suite of projects to upgrade the wastewater system in Bertram, Parmelia and Orelia.

Water Minister Mia Davies said the upgrades would cater for growth in the City of Kwinana.

"The Water Corporation project included 4.2 kilometres of new wastewater main and a storage tank, and an upgrade to the pump station on Bertram Road," Ms Davies said.

"This followed on from another project the corporation completed in September 2015 to construct 3.2km of wastewater main through the Kwinana town centre and Medina.  A wastewater pump station on Dalrymple Drive in Leda was also upgraded as part of the project."

The Minister said the corporation worked closely with local residents and businesses to minimise impacts to the community.

"I thank the local community for their patience and co-operation while essential work was carried out," she said.

"This significant investment ensures wastewater will continue to be managed efficiently, safely and sustainably."
