A new recycled water outfall pipeline has been successfully installed in Anglesea after it was damaged in a cliff collapse.

The installation required a major land and sea operation which included moving the 700 metre welded polyethylene pipeline onto on rollers and across the beach at Point Roadknight, then attaching it to a boat and towing it out to sea.

The pipe was moved into position and lowered 10 metres underwater to align with a pre-drilled bore hole. Finally, the pipe was pulled through the bore, emerging at the Anglesea water reclamation facility on the clifftop.

Work will continue at the reclamation plant to finalise the connection with the project scheduled for completion before the end of the year.
