Sale SPS 01

SPS1 Pump Station

Gippsland Water experienced several spills at Sale Sewer Pumping Station (SPS1). These spills occurred following wet weather events or when a power outage had occurred at the upstream/downstream Longford Sewer Pump Station.

Gippsland Water determined the need to replace the existing Sale SPS1 to cater for
wet weather events and future growth within the catchment.

The scope determined was to provide a new sewer pump station and associated works to send the sewer flows from Sale to Longford via an existing rising main.

Bioaction was engaged to provide an Odour control unit as part of the sewer pump station improvements.

  • The scope included:
  • All aspects of the OCU design, process, electrical, and civil
  • Construction
  • Civil construction
  • System installation and commissioning

The project was impacted by COVID-19 restrictions which limited on site work by Bioaction staff. As a result, GBG Group were engaged to undertake the civil work and subsequently extended to carry out the OCU installation.
