Bombala's sewer network is about to undergo a thorough mains cleaning and inspection program, with work starting from August 10,

The Snowy Monaro Regional Council said the Bombala sewer mains cleaning and inspection program was intended to enhance the operation and maintenance of sewer drainage infrastructure and access chambers.

"This project will identify asset renewals in a priority program into the future to ensure the systems perform effectively with minimal pipe breaks, chokes while maintaining the health and wellbeing of the community," council said.

The cleaning and inspection program requires sewer mains to be jet cleaned and CCTV inspected for defects.

Works will be carried out between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday only.

All work will be done in accordance with social distancing guidelines and council said it would endeavour to limit work in private properties to no more than 1-2 hours.
