Western Water manages over 1257km of sewer mains, transferring sewage from customers' properties to recycled water plants for treatment.
The sewerage system's function is to transfer sewage from customers' properties to the treatment and recycling plants without spilling. This is best done by keeping the sewerage system clean to avoid sewer blockages.
Sewer blockages can cause spills that harm the environment.
