Contract awarded for Palmer Place Stormwater Pump Station
Clutha District Council has awarded the construction
contract for the Palmer Place Stormwater Pump Station to Clearwater Civil Ltd
for a price of $235,309.
Three tenders were received ranging from $235,309 to
The project involves the installation of a stormwater pump
station at the end of Palmer Place, Taieri Mouth.
The pump station site is next to the existing drain at the
head of the cul-de-sac.
The water will be pumped to a dispersal field located on top
of the sand dunes to the east of Palmer Place.
Construction will be starting by the end of next week and is
programmed to be completed by mid-August.
Palmer Place has had a number of flooding events over the
years and this project will drain the surrounding groundwater to provide
capacity for such events.
This will reduce the frequency of flooding the locals have
experienced over the years.
The improved pump station has been designed to cope with
moderate flooding, but in extreme weather conditions there may still be some
flooding, however, the pump system will clear the water more quickly to avoid
the prolonged ponding that has occurred in the past.
