Shire’s sewerage telemetry system to switch to digital

BSC Crest

Burdekin Shire Council will this year begin upgrading the shire’s telemetry equipment at sewerage pump stations and repeater sites from analogue to digital.

The telemetry equipment provides 24-hour monitoring of sewage pump stations and alerts staff of pump faults or other potential pumping failures.

Burdekin Mayor Bill Lowis said this year would be the first year of an ongoing $100,000 commitment for the upgrade.

“Council is also installing a new electrical switchboard at No 1 pump station at Conley Street in Ayr to improve the reliability of the district’s largest pump station,” he said.

“We are also into our fourth year of the shire’s annual sewer re-lining program, allocating $500,000 to add life and reliability to the shire’s ageing sewer pipes.”
