St Andrews Way/Berrys Bay Pressure Sewer Project

Properties in the St Andrew’s Way/Berrys Bay area are soon to be connected to the Shoalhaven Heads town sewerage scheme by way of a pressure sewerage system.

Shoalhaven City Council has resolved that a pressure system is to be designed in the current 2018/2019 financial year and that construction is to be completed by the end of the 2019/2020 financial year.

The project will be undertaken by Shoalhaven Water, a Group of Shoalhaven City Council.


What is a pressure sewerage system?

Pressure sewerage systems comprise a small on-property pumping station that pumps the household sewage into a pressurised reticulation system in the street which thereafter conveys your household sewage to a nearby existing pumping station, then to the Shoalhaven Heads Sewage Treatment Plant (STP).

To give you more detail on what a pressure sewer system comprises, please view the information sheet on Pressure Sewer System Advice. This information sheet has been provided to each property owner involved in the scheme.

A standard installation will be similar to the below illustration (click image to download as PDF).


Further information can be found in Council’s Pressure Sewer System Policy for Backlog Schemes. This document details Council’s adopted approach to delivering a pressure sewer scheme and outlines the process and the potential charges that could apply to individual property owners.

The process for decommissioning an onsite sewage management system is shown in the provided flow chart.
