All systems go for Wakool sewerage scheme

Council had been working towards the finalisation of the project for a number of years, with residents now having access to a low pressure scheme similar to other towns in the Shire.

Wakool Shire Mayor, Cr Andrew Douglas said it is pleasing to have the scheme finalised and is now encouraging residents to arrange connection.

"We appreciate the Wakool Community's ongoing patience on a matter that offered no quick fix."

"Now that the construction works have been completed we are encouraging residents to connect to the scheme by contacting their local plumber."

"Council has also prepared an information kit for households which contains all the details residents may require for connection and ongoing maintenance or issues," he said.

Cr Douglas said the information kits are available from the Barham Office, where residents will also receive connection and pump details specific to their property which can then be passed on to their plumber.

Plumbers may also contact the Barham office for full details on how to connect.

"Our Engineering team is committed to ensuring that residents and local plumbers can achieve a seamless connection to the new system."

"Although the process has been lengthy, the finalisation of the scheme is a great achievement for both Council and the Wakool Community," Cr Douglas said.

Wakool residents should call into the Barham office during business hours to collect their information kits and house-specific connection plans.
