East Gippsland Water has begun works on a $1.4million upgrade to Lakes Entrance’s sewerage system, which includes the installation of a new major pipeline.
Contractors operating on East Gippsland Water’s behalf, and managed by engineering consultants MWH, are installing a new 1.1km pipeline in the North Arm area – along Marine Parade, around the sports and recreation reserve, along North Arm Avenue and under Eastern Creek to Dargo Street.
The pipeline will increase the capacity of the local sewerage system to cater for future population growth in Lakes Entrance, and help to ensure that the efficiency and reliability of sewerage services are maintained in the future.
East Gippsland Water’s Managing Director, Bruce Hammond said, “This project will take approximately three months to complete and there will be no interruption to sewerage services.
“All residents in the immediate area have been contacted and there may be minor, localised traffic diversions.
“Every effort will made to minimise any inconvenience caused by the works and we would like to thank nearby residents and motorists for their patience and cooperation.”
