The Painted Hills Sewer Upgrade is designed to improve the reliability of Yarra Valley Water’s sewer network in Doreen.
JAYDO Construction has mobilised and commenced works at the Painted Hills Sewage Pump Station and Rising Main Project for Yarra Valley Water.
This project involves constructing a new underground pump station near the intersection of Painted Hills Road and Kyarra Drive, Doreen.
It requires 1 km of 500 OD HDPE pipeline from the pump station to the Overland Drive roundabout, under Laurimar Creek to Bradford Drive, where it will connect to the existing sewer network.
Once these works have been completed, then the existing sewer pump station and pipeline will be decommissioned.

The sewer upgrade is expected to take 12 months to complete, with estimated completion in July 2022.
JAYDO Construction was previously contracted by Yarra Valley Water along to perform trenchless and micro-tunnel boring works on the Lockerbie Main Sewer Project.
