Bundarra Sewer Scheme


A new sewerage system is planned for Bundarra with construction expected to begin in late 2020.

The new system will mean a change for properties from on-site treatment and disposal of wastewater within the property to a reticulated collection system with a single treatment plant serving the Bundarra community.

A sewerage scheme for Bundarra, to replace ‘on-site’ systems, such as septic tanks, has been mooted since the 1970s. In 1989 Public Works Advisory recommended that “A reticulated waste water and treatment system will have a significant beneficial impact on sanitation and public health and will eliminate the absorption problems being experienced.

The estimated cost of the project is $5.447 million. Council was awarded grant funding of $3.675 million towards the project from the Restart NSW Water Security for Regions Program and will fund the balance of $1.772 million from reserves and annual sewerage charges.
