Sewer renewal works – Morwell and Churchill - November 2020 - April 2021

We’re strengthening our sewer network in Morwell and Churchill to ensure customers continue to have reliable wastewater services. The works involve using CCTV to inspect sewer pipelines, then cleaning or, where needed, relining ageing or deteriorating pipes.

The method of relining reduces disruption to customers and extends the life of the pipes.

In some cases our contractors, Insituform, will need to access customers’ backyards to carry out these inspections and upgrades.

If this is the case, Insituform will make contact with customers to arrange a suitable time for them to return and undertake works, which will need to be carried out across at least three visits.

Careful planning will ensure minimal disruption to customers, while this important preventative maintenance is completed.

At times between now and April, our contractors will be working in the following streets:

  • Travers Street
  • Elgin Street
  • Maryvale Crescent
  • Aherin Street
  • McInnes Crescent
  • Switchback Road
  • Heesom Crescent
  • Fraser Crescent
  • Howard Avenue
  • Roy Court
  • Edney Court
  • White Parade
  • McDonald Way
  • Townsend Street
  • Manning Drive
