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 have now completed the pipeline installation and have been working with the City of Rockingham on a plan to rehabilitate the area. This reinstatement is now underway and should be completed by March 2021.
