Wastewater Pipeline Duplication in Rockingham

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


To help cater for expected growth and increase in wastewater flows we are installing a new 3.8km treated wastewater pipeline next to an existing pipeline in the City of Rockingham.

The pipeline, referred to as the Sepia Depression Ocean Outlet Landline (SDOOL), transports treated water from several wastewater treatment plants in the metropolitan area and other industries to the ocean outfall offshore from Point Peron

We are installing the new section of pipeline from Ritchie Drive in Rockingham to the Water Corporation wastewater treatment site on Point Peron Road, as shown in the below map.

For parkland areas impacted by our work, we are working with the City of Rockingham to develop a plan to rehabilitate the area following the pipeline installation work.Once the pipe is installed, reinstatement work will take place, with all work on site set to be completed by October 2020.

Find out more information on the project on our webpage.

    To safely install the section of pipe across Bay View Street we need to temporarily close Bay View Street, near the intersection of Rosewood Street, for approximately one week from 13 July to 19 July, 2020.

    A local detour will be in place along Rosewood Street, Lyttleton Street and Fisher Street.

    This detour will take place between Monday 13 July and Sunday 19 July, 2020.

    Please note this work is scheduled to take place across the school holidays to reduce impact as much as possible.

    In addition a temporary lane closure along Safety Bay Road will be in place on Friday 10 July to allow for minor valve works to take place in the verge.

    Signage will be clearly displayed to direct traffic. All work will be completed in accordance with approved traffic management plans.

    Upcoming closures of Memorial Drive and Safety Bay Road will also be required over the coming month.

    Please take extra care in the area to ensure the safety of road users and crews.

    We thank the community for their cooperation and patience while we complete this essential work.

    Work is progressing well on the pipeline project, with over 400m of pipe installed.

    We currently have two crews working to reduce the time taken to complete the project.

    Crew one is installing the section of pipe near Lake Richmond, between Safety Bay Road and Fisher Street. This section will be completed by the end of May.

    The second crew is working to install the pipe between Safety Bay Road and Memorial Drive, which will be completed by mid-June.

    In the coming weeks, once these sections are complete, we will be required to temporarily restrict Safety Bay Road and Memorial Drive, while we complete the road crossings. Further information on exact timings will be provided in the coming days.

    Once these sections are complete, crew one will begin installation of the section of pipe between Fisher Street and Ritchie Drive, and crew two will work to install the pipe from Memorial Drive, to the Treatment Plant on Point Peron Road.

    We acknowledge the inconvenience this work is causing the community and thank you for your ongoing support while we work to complete this project.
