Significance

The West Botany Street Sewer Vent was historically associated with first system of classically proportioned brick stacks which date to around the turn of the 20th century. It was also associated with the Western Main Outfall Sewer, which originally served the Botany Sewage Farm and later Southern and Western Suburbs Ocean Outfall Sewer. Aesthetically, the stack was an excellent example of the tall brick ventilation shafts which were constructed around the turn of the century to facilitate the efficient functioning of the major outfall sewers.

The Project

In June 2015, EXTENT Heritage (formely Futurepast Heritage Consulting Pty Ltd) were commissioned by Metrocorp Technologies on behalf of Sydney Water Corporation to prepare a Photographic Archival Recording for the State heritage listed Arncliffe Sewer Vent. The purpose of the report was to record the current state of Arncliffe Sewer Vent before demolition. The report was undertaken in to comply with relevant guidelines and legislation, and served as a permanent record of the place prior to that work being undertaken.
