UPDATE: HEROLDS BAY SEWER PUMP PIPE TO BE REPAIRED ON FRIDAY
The Herolds Bay sewer pump station rising main failed this morning resulting in spillage in Gericke Street. The Civil Engineering Services teams immediately attended to the situation.
The rising main has been exposed. The repair work on the pipe is currently in process. The delay in exposing the pipe is due to other existing services crossing the pipework and breaking of the concrete encasement on sections of the pipeline.
Meanwhile, the public and residents in Herold’s Bay are kindly requested to use water sparingly during this time and to discharge as little water as possible into the sewer network.
The pipe will only be repaired by tomorrow (Friday, 5 August). Teams indicated that the pipe cracked further into the concrete.
