Greater Western Water (GWW) has completed $20 million water and sewer projects for the region to facilitate urban development.
The $20 million works include an upgraded sewer pump station, a new sewer pipeline and two new water pipelines with most of the projects completed in the past month.
GWW General Manager Growth and Infrastructure Amanda Smith said with the local population projected to double to 46,000 in the next 20 years, this investment will ensure the network can meet demands for services for many years to come.
“It ensures GWW can meet the demand for sewerage services for at least the next 15 years,” said Ms Smith.
“These projects have been safely delivered under COVIDSafe settings, demonstrating the concerted efforts of staff and contractors.”
Works included $6.7 million upgrade to the Grant Street Sewer Pump Station, $9.2 million in 8 km of sewer pipeline from Peelmans Lane to the Bacchus Marsh Recycled Water Plant, and $3.4 million on a duplicate sewer pipeline from Holts Lane to the Avenue of Honour.
These are only a few of the major projects that have been under development and construction across the service area.
