Description:

The design and construction of a reticulation and collection system for the existing 330 dwellings and allotments within the village of Seaspray.

Project Description: Seaspray is located on Victoria�s 90 Mile Beach and the Merriman Creek runs past the outskirts of the village. The reticulation consisted of approximately 8.8klms of polyethylene pipeline that was installed predominantly via directional boring technologies. Each property was served with a stainless steel boundary isolation valve that was connected into the reticulated pipework.

Each property was assessed through a consultation process with the property owner for the location of the Pressure Sewer equipment. Once this location was agreed upon the construction crews set about installing the E.one 2010iP Pressure Sewer Pump Unit, including the pump, control panel and polyethylene discharge piping. Upon completion of the Pressure Sewer Unit (PSU) the plumbing crews undertook the connection of the black & grey water drains from the residential buildings to the PSU. During the plumbing connection works each pump unit was commissioned and tested. Therefore once all work was completed on each property the PSU was in full operation.

Additional to this scope was the design and construction of 4.5klms of rising main, waste water treatment plant and irrigation system and a central sewerage pump station which is used during periods of low flow to move the effluent to the WWTP.

Currently the Seaspray Pressure Sewer System has been operating for over 6 months with no failures of the Pressure Sewer Equipment. This has been attributed to a concise design, experienced construction crews with proven procedures and reliable Pressure Sewer Products.
