Decision Report now available

We’re stopping the continuous discharge of untreated wastewater into our ocean.

From Watsons Bay to Dover Heights, the wastewater system is out-of-date. The wastewater we collect is not treated, instead it flows directly into the ocean at three points along the cliff -face. It’s time we fixed the system.

Back in June we released our Review of Environmental Factors (REF), which looked at the environmental impacts of the work we need to do to divert the wastewater system to the treatment plant in Bondi.

We asked for community feedback and we received 33 written submissions. These submissions and our responses to the issues raised have been compiled into a Decision Report, which is now available to download.

However, in responding to these submissions, we did more than just write a report. We also got our technical team back in to do some more investigating. We wanted to make sure that we didn’t just listen to what you had to say but also, act on it.

Parsley Bay

Following the submissions, we had another look at the new pump station at Parsley Bay. We spoke to surrounding residents and to Woollahra Council and have come up with a new design.

We have changed the layout of the pump station in Parsley Bay to minimise its impact on the surrounding vegetation and rocky terrain. This is in line with community and Council expectations.

You can read more in Section 3 of the Decision Report.
