The Jetty Road Sewage Pump Station project, located in Stiegleitz on Tasmania's East Coast, included the design and construction of an 8m deep pump sewage pump station and associated offline storage. This comprised of 3 x DN4000 precast tanks with interconnecting pipework.
IPD Consulting were engaged by TasWater to design the pump station and acted as Clerk of Works to ensure construction was completed in accordance with the design intent. The project construction was complicated with the proximity to Georges Bay resulting in high groundwater tables, which included tidal influences. The construction was completed inside a sheet piled dewatering zone which was 8m below the existing surface. On addition, this project included directional drilling of deep gravity sewers to connect into the new tanks.
