The Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) advises that it is in the final phase of the Beetham Sewer Pipeline Project. This follows an unfortunate delay as works was temporarily suspended on the project after an employee of T&TEC fell and was injured at the jobsite last week.
Following the incident, Occupational Health and Safety Authority (OSHA) conducted and concluded its investigations
and the Authority was cleared to resume works. As a result of this occurrence, completion of the project has been deferred to on or before 18th February 2022.
At present, all three manholes have been installed and work is underway to put in the necessary pipeline to interconnect the new lines to the existing system. Substantive works for this component is expected to be completed by the end of this week, after which sewage flows will be fully restored through the new pipeline system.
Completion of the pipeline interconnection works will also allow for the commencement of final remedial and restoration works, inclusive of permanent road restoration.
The new system will eliminate sewer backups and the disruption and discomfort to residents. The Authority wishes to reassure residents of Beetham that it is working diligently to complete this project as soon as possible in order to restore normalcy to the community.
