sewer pipe

Western Water has finished work on a $3 million sewer pipeline in Diggers Rest, Victoria.

The new 2km main connects Diggers Rest’s new housing estates to Western Water’s sewer network to cater for the increase in sewage flows from a growing population. The project was completed with minimal impact to nearby properties and traffic.

The sewer pipeline is one of two recent investments to Western Water’s sewer network in Diggers Rest. Western Water also invested $1.5 million to upgrade the Sewer Pump Station near Tame Street, increasing pumping capacity from 37l/s to 70l/s.

Both projects are critical to ensuring that Western Water continues to meet the demand for essential water and sewer services.

Western Water invested $70 million in capital works in 2018/19 and is projected to spend $82 million in 2019/20, much of that to support development growth in its service region.
