Operated by the Bundaberg Regional Council, Woodgate Vacuum Sewer Station is a medium-sized plant which services an area of approximately 3000 people and can grow to a population of 8000 in peak holiday times.
The sewer station incorporates a network of sewage lines that come from houses and businesses, and which all lead back to a collection point. A vacuum tank is located at the collection point and the sewage flows towards the tank with the aid of vacuum pumps.
Major upgrades at Woodgate Beach will improve infrastructure in these areas. The sum of $ 1,820,000 is allocated to Wastewater Services for the Woodgate Vacuum Sewer Extension (New SPS and Vac Mains)
