Yarra Valley Water

Yarra Valley Water has partnered with Waternish Engineering to upgrade sewerage and recycled water treatment plants across its network.

Initially set for five years, the contract has the potential to be extended to a total of ten years.

The $10 million annual Treatment Plant Improvement Program marks the first permanent prescence for Waternish outside of South Australia.

Waternish, along with Yarra Valley Water partner Service Stream, will work on the program to deliver small to medium projects to upgrade the existing infrastructure.

Yarra Valley Water growth futures general manager Bridie Fennessy said upgrading the treatment plans are essential.

“We’re looking forward to working with Waternish, and our joint partner Service Stream, to renew and upgrade our treatment plants so we can continue to meet the needs of our growing community in the region,” Fennessy said.

“Waternish brings a wealth of experience from working in the South Australian water market and is growing its capacity in Victoria.”

“Through deeper relationships, a strong focus on sharing innovations and learnings, these partnerships provide a strong foundation to ensure the reliable operation of our critical infrastructure and efficient delivery of services to our customers.”
