Meringandan West sewerage network upgrade

Meringandan sewerage project

This project will provide trunk sewerage infrastructure to service the sewered areas of Rosalie Downs, Rosella Gardens and Rosella Highlands. The work will enable existing pump-out facilities located near the Meringandan State School and the northern-eastern side of Rosella Highlands to be decommissioned.

Project works will include sewage pump stations, chemical dosing, emergency overflow storage, sewage pressure and gravity mains. Sewage will be pumped to the existing sewage pump station at Browne Road from which it will be pumped to the Wetalla Water Reclamation Facility for treatment.

Start date

Construction commenced in early 2017.

Completion date

Due for completion in September 2017.


Most construction work was completed during the 2016/17 financial year, with completion and commissioning of the sewage pump stations, and decommissioning of the existing pump-out facilities, to be undertaken early in the 2017/18 financial year.
