What we are doing

  • Downer, as part of SCIRT, is repairing the earthquake damaged wastewater system in Woolston.
  • Starting Thursday 19 January 2017, Downer will be working in Rutherford Street to repair a section of the wastewater mainline. See Map 1 for location of works.
  • This work will take about two nights to complete, subject to favourable on-site and weather conditions. We will be working from 7:00pm–5:00am.
  • This work is being done at night to minimise impact to businesses and traffic flow during the day.
  • To complete the patch repair we will need to install over-pumping which diverts wastewater between two manholes while we work on the mainline.
Please note:
You may hear an increased level of noise associated with this work. If you have any questions or concerns about the impact of this work, please contact us.
