Properties in Heathcote, Victoria will be among the first to connect to Coliban Water’s expanded sewer network.
Coliban Water’s Heathcote project includes building a new sewer pump station and installing 10 km of new sewer main to ensure the Heathcote community receive safe wastewater services.
Approximately 30 per cent of the pipeline will be installed using boring or directional drilling to reduce the need for excavation.
Coliban Water Manager Infrastructure Corey Bourne said that sections of the AU$5 million Heathcote Sewer Scheme Project are now entirely complete, while others are still in early stages of construction.
The properties built on these completed sections can connect early to the sewer network, while remaining property owners will be able to connect in the new year.
“Around 150 properties are expected to connect with further connections happening as vacant lots are developed,” said Mr Bourne.
“Our project ensures wastewater is safely contained and transported to our Heathcote Water Reclamation Plant where it is treated to a standard where it can be used for irrigation purposes.”
The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
