IF you've been driving along the Broadwater-Evans Head Rd lately, you may have noticed a line of orange flags stretching from the sewerage treatment plant to Broadwater.
While it may look a bit festive, the flags are part of the Broadwater sewerage project that has kicked off.
"The contractors have established the site compound," said Richmond Valley Council's manager for water, sewerage and pools, Terry Seymour.
Mr Seymour said most of the work up to this point had been investigation work and this stage of the project was now complete.
"The designs have been finalised on the town reticulation, including individual property plans," he said.
Mr Seymour said they had purchased the E1 pressure units, better known as 'pumping pods' that would be installed in each yard.
He also said council would cover the costs of the pumps for each current residence.
"The project is on track and we are looking at having (the sewerage system) in operation by February 2013," he said.
"This is allowing for wet weather."
