Yarra Valley Water (VIC) has completed sewage service upgrades in Wonga Park, which aim to eliminate discharges from failing septic tank systems that go into local waterways.

Yarra Valley Water has been designing the sewage scheme over the last two years and currently 282 out of 332 properties or 85 per cent of properties have connected to the new sewer network.

Just one property that is connected to the upgraded network can remove 1.5 kilograms of nutrients and over 15 billion viruses every year from local stormwater drains and creeks.

Yarra Valley Water said the nutrient discharge from a single property is the equivalent of droppings from 11 dogs going directly into the creeks.

The new sewerage services for Wonga residents are now complete and available for connection.
