Gippsland Water has installed a new disinfection system at its Warragul South treated water storage basin, as part of its $48 million investment to futureproof infrastructure and improve resilience in the Baw Baw Shire. 

The upgraded system is expected to improve reliability and safeguard water quality in the region.  

Gippsland Water Managing Director, Sarah Cumming, said that the $400,000 project was a part of a larger program of work to boost resilience across the organisation’s service area.   

“We’re investing $48 million across the Baw Baw Shire to support high-growth areas, increase system capacity and maintain infrastructure,” Ms Cumming said. 

“Routine upgrades, like this one, play a crucial role in maintaining the effectiveness and reliability of the entire network.  

“While there’s often more buzz around our bigger projects, like large-scale treatment plant upgrades, smaller projects like this one are also important for ensuring our customers can continue to rely on us for safe and reliable drinking water.”
