Our Projects

Simply Water and Sewer understands the importance of a smooth project delivery in order to obtain the Section 73 Certificate as early in the project timeline as possible. Our experience, professionalism and systematic approach to all projects is essential in reaching this very clear objective. In the same way we are also committed to a fast turnaround on minor works projects.

Some of our projects include:-

Hermitage Estate, Mount Brown (complete)

Project Description

This project was an urban subdivision with 131 residential housing lots, three artificial wetlands and a sewage pumping station and associated sewer rising main.  The site was in challenging terrain at the source of three water courses leading into LakeIllawarra.  Attractive lots were produced on moderately steep land.  Water quality of runoff from the subdivision to LakeIllawarra has been maintained at a high quality.

Technical Challenges & Outcomes

The team provided a design that balanced earthworks to minimise costs of importation and exportation of material.  Earthworks areas included roads, lot regrading areas and dam walls for the water quality ponds.

The road was designed to accommodate major existing service infrastructure which traverses the site, with minimal affectation to housing lots, to accommodate three water quality ponds and an appropriate space for the sewage pumping station.

Project management of the design and construction of a sewage pumping station and associated sewer rising main having regard to the minimisation of running and maintenance and construction costs as well as minimising disruption to the existing area.  The sewage pumping station is located in an easily accessible and low part of the project and adjacent to one of the water quality ponds.  The vent shaft, which is located at the connection point to the receiving sewer is disguised by pre existing vegetation.

Churchfield Estate, Anthony Drive, Rosemeadow (ongoing)

Project Description

The project involved obtaining Construction Certificate, detailed design including structurally designed retaining walls, full sewer and water design and project management, quantification, tendering and assessment of construction packages, contract administration of project works, and provision of technical advice in relation to design implications.

Technical Challenges & Outcomes

The site crossed by a large Sydney Water watermain which could not be adjusted or deviated. The road alignment was designed to allow this watermain to remain in the proposed road reserve, this avoided lots being burdened with easements and restrictions.

Baptist Community Services, Tullimbar (complete)

Project Description

The project involved providing water and sewer infrastructure to the development land as lead-in works through adjoining properties.

The process involved liaison with adjoining property owners, design of the sewer and water infrastructure, quantification, tendering and assessment of the construction package, contract administration or project works, project management and certification of the construction works.

Innovations Delivered

When the NSW State Government abolished the Developer Service Plan fee to stimulate growth, Sydney Water introduced a funding policy whereby all lead-in works were funded by Sydney Water. In this instance we approached the owner of the land adjacent and further away from the existing sewer and water infrastructure to enable the BCS land to be also covered by “lead in” works. This resulted in two developers benefiting from the new Sydney Water funding policy by lodging an application by the developer which was furthest from the existing sewer and water infrastructure resulting in maximum lead in works.

Jarvisfield Estate, Picton (ongoing)

Project Description

The project involved the planning, urban layout & design, obtaining Development Consent & Construction Certificate, detailed design,  quantification, tendering and assessment of construction packages, contract administration of project works including extensive sewer and water works, rising main and pumping station, technical advice to Coldenham in relation to the overall development and design implications especially with respect to the pumping station, liaison with Wingecarribee Shire Council, Sydney Water, survey and finalisation of subdivision certificate of various stages 1 to 1C and ongoing.

Innovations Delivered

The sewer rising main has been designed so as to minimise running costs of the sewage pumping station, to minimise construction costs and to minimise disruption to other infrastructure and the general area.  This has been achieved by locating the sewage rising main in footpath areas and by locating vent shafts new existing vegetation where possible.

Technical Challenges & Outcomes

The sewer infrastructure includes design of a diversion mechanism whereby sewer flows from older housing lots, located upstream of the project, will be redirected to the new sewage pumping station via the new reticulation mains.  This diversion mechanism has been designed so that the new reticulation mains can be constructed without disruption of sewage flows from the older housing lots and so that the diversion of the older lots to the near system can be affected with minimal disruption and in a matter of a few hours.
