Stormwater Sydney was hired by a client in the Blacktown Council area to address the lack of maintenance of their stormwater assets. The scope of services included cleaning and maintaining two gross pollutant traps (GPTs) and associated pipework, which were found to be blocked, and a sewerage pumping station (SPS) that also needed inspection, cleaning, and maintenance. Stormwater Sydney was responsible for preparing a report for Blacktown Council and establishing a future maintenance schedule for the site.
The main challenge for Stormwater Sydney was to complete the job efficiently and effectively while ensuring compliance with EPA and Council regulations. Another challenge was to work in a High Voltage area without causing any damage to the electrical equipment. The site also had plans for future development, which required further discussion with the council to ensure that the proposed work aligned with their requirements.
Stormwater Sydney developed a comprehensive plan that included project management, communication with the council, and regular updates to the client. The team used a mix of manual and mechanical means to remove the substantial sediment in the pipes. They established a bunded disposal area on-site and pressure cleaned and vacuumed the pipes as required. The material was then dumped in the bunded area to ensure compliance with environmental regulations.
To address the High Voltage area, Stormwater Sydney took extra precautions to ensure that the equipment was not damaged during the cleaning process. They spent some ten days on site cleaning the pipeline associated with the GPT’s. Stormwater Sydney prepared a report for Blacktown Council, which included a future maintenance schedule for the site.
