Wyee Sewer

The NSW Government and Hunter Water are delivering a $30 million project to provide sewer services to properties in the Wyee township.

When completed, sewer connections will be provided to 400 existing homes and businesses with the capacity to cater for developments in future residential subdivisions and surrounding areas. View the project map to see which properties are included in the scheme.

The sewer scheme will replace existing on-property septic systems, and aims to reduce environmental and public health concerns and improve service reliability. View the Concept Designs for the reticulated mains, pump stations and manholes in our document library.

Construction is expected to start in mid-2019 with the system ready for connection to residential homes by the end of 2020.

    Hi Krystal

    Thanks for your question.

    Early works will start shortly to install 500 metres of sewer pipework along the northern side of  Macquarie Street, from near the Morisset Station (on the station side of the street) to the existing transfer main at the corner of Wharf Street.

    The purple line in the aerial image below shows where the pipework will be laid.

    We are working closely with Lake Macquarie City Council to complete this work in conjunction with Council planned upgrades to the road, including a new footpath, kerb and guttering and improvements to formalise car parking on both side of the street.

    There will be no impact to residents’ driveways, however roadside parking on both sides of Macquarie Street will be unavailable during construction to allow works to progress. We will have traffic controls in place to assist commuters and local residents travel through the area.

    I hope this assist you. Let us know if you need any further information at this time.

    Kind regards,

    Wyee Sewer team
