Unitywater is upgrading two major sewage transport systems in the Caloundra and Mountain Creek areas.
In October Unitywater awarded the contract of the projects to Pipeline Drillers. There will be no significant activity on site until commencement of construction, currently anticipated to commence early 2017.

Caloundra Sewage Transport System Unitywater is constructing a new 900 mm sewer rising main 2.5 kilometres from the existing sewage pumping station near the corner of Caloundra Road and Pelican Waters Boulevard to Beerburrum Road. The construction involves specialist contractor Pipeline Drillers drilling 1.6 kilometres along the western side of Nicklin Way. This is the longest horizontal direction drill of this size pipe undertaken in this country. Drilling the major part of the rising main will minimise the project’s impact on the community by reducing disruption to roads, pathways and other public areas. The new rising main will be connected to existing rising mains and sewage pumping stations which supply the Kawana Sewage Treatment Plant.

Unitywater is upgrading the sewerage network to cater for future population growth in the South Buderim, Sippy Downs and Mountain Creek areas. The construction of a new sewer pipeline will increase the capacity and efficiency of the sewerage network from these growing communities to the Kawana Sewage Treatment Plant.
The construction of the new sewerage main involves the installation of new connections to existing rising mains and sewage pump stations leading to the Kawana Sewage Treatment Plant. The majority of the works will be completed by trenchless drilling methods to ensure minimal impact to the community and the environment through reduced disruption to roads, pathways, waterways and other public areas. On completion of construction, all roads, footpaths and vegetation will be restored.
Unitywater and Pipeline Drillers will ensure all affected residents and businesses are kept informed of potential impacts from the construction and will work to minimise disruption.
Approximately one pool in every 20 has a leak! Even a minor leak can result in a major water loss. Under pressure a tiny leak can lose more than 3000 litres a day.
