Robertson community members learned more about the new sewerage scheme last weekend at a community information session which was held in the village.
About 100 people attended the event to see and hear how the new scheme will be built and installed on their property.
The session was organised by the construction contractor, AJ Lucas, in conjunction with Wingecarribee Shire Council and NSW Public Works.
Posters, detailed maps, display units and model pumps were all on display for people to read and see. Fact sheets and information booklets were also available to take away.
AJ Lucas’ General Manager-Water Group, Robert Wale, said the community information session was a worthwhile and successful event for all concerned.
“AJ Lucas is very keen to inform the community about their construction process and this was very much the purpose of the information day on Saturday,” he said.
“It was therefore great to have such a good community attendance. This was an ideal opportunity for people to come forward to ask questions and find out more details. It was also useful for us to have direct conversations with local residents.
“A number of our project team members were on hand during the day to answer questions and explain how the system will work and how pipes will be laid in individual streets. Staff from Wingecarribee Shire Council and NSW Public Works were also available for questions.
“Many people went away feeling very informed by the event. They also told us that they were pleased to be able to ask direct questions of the team who will actually build the scheme.
“As such I think it was a very worthwhile and successful event.”
For anyone who could not attend Saturday’s information session, the fact sheets from the day are now available on the new project website at www.robertsonsewerage.com.au.
This includes information about the construction process, anticipated timeframes, environmental management and other related issues. The website will be regularly updated as the project progresses.
