Pavilion Pumping Station, Emergency Storage Vessels & Rising Main Overview
The delivery of the Pavilion Pumping Station, Emergency Storage Vessel & Rising Main was a critical piece of infrastructure required in order to connect the development to an existing sewer network.
The delivery of the pumping station involved Delplant completing:
- Preliminary site works
- A shored excavation 4m wide, 4m long, 6.4m deep
- Installation of submersible pumps to control ground water.
- Hire in 160T Crane to lift in precast concrete sewer pump station segments which will total 6.4m high of concrete structure underground. Heaviest precast unit was circa 19 tonne.
- Pump in a 9.5m3 concrete ballast around the base of the wet well to ensure the pump station doesn’t lift due to high groundwater water table.
- Completed concrete handstand works around the pump station including suitable access track and ultimate landscaping works.
The delivery of the emergency storage vessels involved Delplant completing:
- Supply & install a 45KL Emergency Storage Vessel at 4m depth.
The delivery of the rising main involved Delplant completing:
- 1.3km 100mm PVC rising main along the existing road reservation (Ballarto road).
- Works involved working in and around existing services, such as Telstra and large diameter water mains.
- Outlet manhole connection into a 300mm branch sewer to the west of the development.
As part of the delivery of these works, develop had to manage stakeholder expectations (i.e residents & landowners) and reinstate land and road reservations to existing condition.
