FEBRUARY 2013 WATER 25 Industry News Salamanca Sewerage Upgrade Completed The completion this week of a $1.5m upgrade of sewerage infrastructure in Salamanca will x long-term sewage over ow problems in the area. Salamanca has long suffered from sewage problems caused by ageing infrastructure, stormwater entry and trade waste discharge, resulting in repeated over ows and odour problems in the area. Southern Water's $1.5m Salamanca Sewerage Upgrade has seen pipes, valves and electrical systems upgraded, as well as the replacement of the original pump station built 108 years ago. CEO Mike Paine said that the sewer network is now properly equipped to handle waste from the accommodation, bars, cafes and restaurants in the area. "This project has been undertaken to ensure that the sewerage infrastructure in Salamanca meets the needs of such a busy area. The over ow incidents that have occurred in the past in Salamanca are something that nobody wants to see happen in one of Hobart's most popular dining and entertainment areas, and we have worked hard over the last three years to ensure that the system can now meet demand," he said.
