Unitywater has completed the upgrade of the sewerage network in Kings Beach, Caloundra. We would like to thank the community’s patience and understanding during completion of these works.
Protecting our environment and making sure the sewerage network can meet the needs of a growing Sunshine Coast community are our priorities. That’s why Unitywater is investing almost $500 million in sewerage infrastructure for our community over the next five years.
In February 2012, Unitywater invested $2 million to upgrade the Kings Beach sewerage network in Caloundra. This project will provide essential infrastructure to service the growing community and deliver better outcomes for public health and the environment.
The improved sewerage network will provide a long term sustainable solution for the Caloundra community and environment. This upgrade will provide a number of benefits for nearby residents, businesses and the environment, including:
The project included the installation of a 550 metre gravity sewer along Ormond Terrace and Edmund Street connecting to the existing sewer near the corner of Moreton Parade and Saltair Street. The existing pump station at Levuka Avenue was also expanded to connect with this new incoming sewer.
Unitywater is committed to working with the community to ensure better outcomes on this project for residents and the environment. We have taken every care to ensure public safety and minimise disruption to the Caloundra community.
As Kings Beach is a popular tourist destination, construction was planned during the winter season when visitor numbers are at their lowest. The contractors worked to ensure the project was completed before the start of the September school holidays and the annual Caloundra Music Festival, to minimise disruption in the area.
This essential project will improve the sewerage network in emergency situations such as mechanical failure, power failure or wet weather inundation.
