Cockle Bay Towns Sewerage Project

We are pleased to announce that the Cockle Bay Towns Sewerage Project is now complete and connection is available.

About the project

This $11 million project first entered the pipeline in the 1990s, when unsewered areas in the Cockle Bay catchment were deemed high priority for improved sewerage service.

The majority of properties in the service area (which spans Empire Bay, Bensville and Kincumber South) are now being serviced by a Pressure Sewer System (PSS), while a small number of properties are being serviced by a gravity sewer system.

A sewage pumping station has been installed on the corner of Wards Hill Road and Empire Bay Drive, Empire Bay, and will ultimately service over 300 properties.

Looking to connect?

To find out whether your property can connect to the pressure sewer system or the gravity sewer system, please contact council on 4325 8222.

Once you know which system your property ​can connect to, download a Connection Pack - Pressure or Connection Pack - Gravity and ​return the completed forms for the connection process to automatically commence.
