Works are set to begin on refurbishing more than 4.2 kilometres of wastewater pipeline in parts of Cottesloe, Mosman Park and Peppermint Grove.
Minister for Water, Mia Davies, said the $3.5 million project would extend the life of the pipes by at least 50 years.
“About 4.2 kilometres of wastewater pipes along a number of streets in Cottesloe, Mosman Park and Peppermint Grove will be refurbished in different stages over the next five months,” Davies said.
“Residents will notice an increase in activity along the pipeline route, however traffic management will be in place at all times and disruption will be kept to a minimum.”
The project will rely on trenchless technology to reline wastewater pipes where possible, as well as keep disruption to a minimum.
The technology will allow workers to avoid extensive excavation to access the wastewater pipes.
"I want to thank the residents in advance for their patience while the corporation carries out this work," she said.
The work will begin on Irvine Street in Peppermint Grove and continue to North, Jarrad, Palmerston and Warton streets.
Water Corportation of WA collects and treats roughly 167.5 billion litres of wastewater each year.
