The works on High Street, Creek Street North and Short Street in Bendigo, Victoria will improve sewer service reliability.
Coliban Water has commenced a major renewal project in Bendigo, Victoria using a trenchless technique that eliminates the need for contractors to excavate.
Coliban Water Manager Infrastructure Corey Bourne said the works on High Street, Creek Street North and Short Street will improve sewer service reliability.
“Our contractor, Interflow, will work at night so we can minimise impact to customers, business and traffic during the works period,” said Mr Bourne.
Interflow will reline the pipe with a spiral wound polyvinyl chloride (PVC) liner that restores the structural integrity and reliability of the sewer main, while also reducing the environmental and social impacts.
“The ongoing renewal of sewer mains across our region is an integral part of our operations to ensure we maintain and deliver services to customers,” said Mr Bourne.
“We inspect sewer mains by feeding through a CCTV camera.
“The footage is then reviewed to identify sections of the main that have been damaged and need to be renewed.”
The project began on 6 November and is due to be completed by the end of the month.
