Six sewerage pumps will be upgraded across stations in Hervey Bay and Maryborough by Repump Australia.

Councillors also voted to install a gravity main at the Nikenbah sewer pump and replace the kerb and channel along Aimee Dr.

Infrastructure councillor Denis Chapman said the projects, all approved in confidential, totalled more than $3 million.

"It's a sign we're looking after our assets in this region, that this money is being spent on improving systems," Cr Chapman said.

"The relining program with our sewer system is especially important, if we don't look at it soon we could have problems with pipes breaking."
