Sewage Intrusion Program
West Tamar Council and City of Launceston are participating in a program funded by NRM North as part of the Launceston City Deal to improve the health of the Tamar Estuary.
The primary objective is to identify instances of sewage in the urban stormwater systems. Paneltec, as authorised officers of the West Tamar Council, undertook inspections of stormwater systems throughout Trevallyn and Riverside from July until November 2019. They then moved into Newstead, Punchbowl and Mowbray Catchments, before returning to north Riverside in the West Tamar in April 2020. They have since moved onto Youngtown, Newnham and Ravenswood, and are expected to again return to the West Tamar Municipality as the program continues. Inspections will only be undertaken on public property due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
