Freemans Reach, Glossodia & Wilberforce, NSW


The aim of this project was to install and connect over 500 houses to the existing sewerage transfer main, removing the need to empty septic tanks regularly, therefore reducing annual running cost and potential health and environmental risks.


This project incorporated the three towns of Freemans Reach, Glossodia and Wilberforce in which every house was connected. MMA Civil Contractors were responsible for installing approximately 500 on-property Mono pressure sewerage pots and providing the connection to the existing transfer main. The scope of the works included; cutting out a 2m deep 800mm diameter hole for every sewerage pot, a 600mm deep trench back to the house and to the boundary of the property then installing an electrical connection back to the meter board and a 40mm polyurethane line back to the boundary kit from a sewerage pot. As all of this work were done on private property. A major part of this project involved communicating with residents to try and minimise the disturbance caused while also restoring the works area to match its original state for which we won a number of awards for over the course of the project.
