Glen Eden wastewater storage tank and pipeline

We are upgrading the wastewater network in the Glen Eden area, which will increase the network capacity and reduce overflows.

Start-finish: 2016-2017
Location: Harold Moody Park, Glendale Road and Parrs Park, Glen Eden  
Status: Construction  

What's happening?

The system needs to be upgraded to support the significant population growth predicted for Glen Eden. The population is likely to rise from 24,700 to approximately 45,600 by 2051. 

The existing wastewater network in the Glen Eden area does not have enough capacity to manage flows during wet weather events. During heavy rainfalls, the network overflows diluted wastewater into the surrounding environment, as well as private properties. The new storage tank and pipeline will cater for growth and reduce these overflows from an average of 10 per year to two or fewer.​

Network upgrades will involve building a wastewater storage tank under the car park at Harold Moody Reserve and installing a three new wastewater pipes; Glendale Road, Parrs Park and Sherrybrooke Esplanade.​

What are the benefits?

  • Accommodating population growth in Glen Eden
  • Large underground storage to deal with increased flows during wet weather
  • Helps to protect local waterways
  • Three new pipelines to increase network capacity

How will project works affect you?

  • Closure of Benita Place walkway into Parrs Park until early October
  • Traffic diversions along Glendale Road until early October
  • The Harold Moody car park closed as the underground storage tank is built
  • Harold Moody playground remains open​
