The installation of a Gross Pollutant Trap located at San Remo will be completed this week, with work resuming from Monday, 25 February.

This $310,000 project is funded by Council as part of its 2018/19 Capital Works Program. The aim of the project is to improve visual amenity, as well as stormwater quality and discharge into Western Port. These important works will help ensure the drainage network has longevity.

The final construction works include the installation of a backflow prevention device on the main outfall pipe, construction of the hardstand area/access point for the gross pollutant trap and modification of an existing pit located within the carpark area.

Traffic movements, beach access and pedestrian movements may be affected and some foreshore carpark areas will be closed while the work is completed. Contractors will make every effort to minimise disruptions during construction.
