Tumut Sewerage Scheme

26 June 1945 The Tumut and Adelong Times 

Two-Thirds of Dwellings Now Connected.

Approximately two-thirds of the total number of dwellings within the Tumut sewerage area have now been connected to the Shire Council s sewer, leaving 160 premises yet to be sewered, reported the Health Officer Mr. J. F. Lockeridge, to the last Council meeting.

The completion of another house service last week brought the total to 311 now on the scheme. 

Two other jobs are in course of construction, whilst another is held-up waiting the convenience of the contractor, who is busy elsewhere. 

An officer of the Sewerage Branch of the Public Works Department visited Tumut recently and inspected the sewerage treatment works and house service connections. 

The officer's report and recommendations will be forwarded for Council's consideration later.
