CULLEN BULLEN $4.8M SEWER PROJECT BEGINS

Member for Bathurst Paul Toole has turned the first sod on a $4.8 million water project for the Cullen Bullen community to upgrade local sewage infrastructure funded by the NSW Government.


“This project will deliver a sewer collection network that will move wastewater from each local residence to the new Cullen Bullen wastewater treatment plant,” Mr Toole said.


This funding will add to over $13.5 million already provided to fund projects in the area under the Resources for Regions program, which is specifically designed to support regional communities impacted by mining activity.



Mr Toole said upgrades to the new sewer collection system and new wastewater treatment plant will deliver significant benefits for the local Cullen Bullen community.


“The upgrades will provide a modern sewerage drainage system and treatment plant, replacing existing deficient, ageing and malfunctioning septic tank systems," he said.


“We also expect to see new local employment opportunities and the expansion of local industry and businesses as a result of the upgrades, both through construction and ongoing operation.

“This is what the Resources for Regions program is designed for – to make sure mining affected communities receive unique support which best suits their needs, ensuring jobs growth and better lifestyles in regional NSW."
