Fogging Program and Pipework Imaging Planned for Mareeba

By March 1, 2024March 18th, 2024No Comments

Mareeba Shire Council wishes to advise residents of a planned project to complete sewer fogging and pipework imaging in Mareeba around the Kenneally Road, Peters Street and Granite Creek areas.

The project will commence on Monday, 4 March 2024 and will take approximately three months to complete. Council’s contractor will commence with the sewer fogging program followed by pipework imaging.

A letter will be sent to residents approximately one week before work is scheduled for their area.  Further information and a sewer network map relating to this project is available below.

Council’s contractors, FlowPro Pty Ltd, may require access to properties with a sewer maintenance shaft within their property. Residents are advised to contact Council if they have any concerns regarding the contractor entering their property, or if you wish to validate his/her authorisation. Please contact Council on the information below.

Council would like to assure residents that the fog is not harmful and does not contain chemicals. The fog is from a food grade material and is safe for humans, native and land animals.

Mayor Toppin explains, “The fogging machine will inject fog through Council’s sewer network. If any fog is visible, it can indicate defects within the sewer reticulation network that requires rectification and or remediation.”

“Similarly, the pipework imaging will make use of a camera to give Council a picture of the infrastructure currently in place and the work required to the sewer network.”

“Council will address these areas before commencing the 2024/25 sewer manhole and relining programs,” Mayor Toppin concluded.

Council apologises for any inconvenience caused by these necessary works and your cooperation and patience is appreciated.

Should you wish to discuss any aspect of the sewer fogging program further, please direct your enquiry to Council’s Infrastructure Services Administration Team on 1300 308 461.
