PROGRESS: Wastewater work underway in the Port Neill community.

Works on the Port Neill Community Wastewater Management Scheme is nearly finished with pressure testing and house connection to occur over the next few months.

Tumby Bay District Council works manager Damian Windsor provided an update on works at the council meeting on Tuesday.

Mr Windsor said civil works were 95 per cent completed with the treatment lagoon and solar powered pumping system now in place.

“All pipes are in the ground,” he said.

Mr Windsor said pressure testing of the pipes would happen very soon and connections would start by mid March.

Tumby Bay mayor Sam Telfer said he was encouraged by the efforts of EP Civil and Earthmovers who were contracted for the works.

“We have worked closely with the residents to ensure a streamlined process,” he said.

“This is essential for the future of Port Neill as a growing town.”
