Comment sought on Umina drainage concept plans
Central Coast Council is seeking comment on its concept plans for stage five of its Everglades drainage upgrade between Lovell St and Carpenter St in Umina.
"The project includes cleaning and relining the existing storm water pipes between Lovell Rd and the outlet west of Carpenter St with a fully structural liner to prevent tree root invasion and blocking," residents were told in a letter from Council project engineer Mr David Mowll.
Existing storm water inlet pits would be replaced with new pits that "provide improved inlet capacity, sediment capture and improved access for maintenance".
The project would "upgrade the existing outlet behind Carpenter St to improve outlet flows and prevent erosion".
Mr Mowll said the council had received grant funding but "construction timelines have not been finalised".
"The community will be informed of the proposed timing for construction once it has been determined."
Written comments will be accepted by the council until March 5.
