Coongulla Glenmaggie Sewerage Scheme works a cut above

The water corporation and its contractors have laid 23 km of sewer pipes in and around Coongulla, Glenmaggie Point and Glenmaggie by boring underground.

By using this technique, they have saved 85 per cent of the native vegetation and left the appearance of townships unscarred.

The corporation and its contractors, Maffra Trenching and Boring, worked hard to reduce the impact on vegetation, Gippsland Water General Manager Customer Service and Communications Paul Clark said.

“Wellington Shire Council had given us permission to clear vegetation, but we decided to avoid that by drilling underground instead,” Mr Clark said.

In April 2013, the project had achieved two 800 m long underlake crossings.
