Current works (Monday 27 September - Sunday 3 October)

Works at Tyers water treatment plant

Throughout September, we’re doing some upgrades at our Tyers water treatment plant, which means the plant will be operating at reduced capacity.

This work won’t impact the water supply to customers, however customers in Tyers, Rosedale, Cowwarr, Toongabbie, Glengarry and Willung are encouraged to consider putting off any non-essential use if they can. If you’re thinking about washing your cars, cleaning down hard services, cleaning and topping up your pools, please hold off for the time being.

We’ll be trucking in in water from Sale, Traralgon and Morwell and you might notice increased road activity in the area. We’ve also put in place traffic management at a small section of the Princes Hwy near our Rosedale basin, and on Fitzgibbons Rd and Boulton Cres near the Tyers water treatment plant. Please take care in these areas. Thank you for your understanding.

Heyfield-Coongulla interconnect water main project

We are securing Coongulla and Glenmaggie’s water supply by installing a pipeline to connect the townships to Heyfield’s water system.

This project will result in a more reliable service to the towns. Coongulla and Glenmaggie residents’ water is currently sourced from Lake Glenmaggie, which has proven to be a less-than-reliable water source. Installing a water distribution main to deliver water from Heyfield will address both quality and reliability issues. Read more about the project.

Works are continuing at the Heyfield water treatment plant and along pipe alignment on Angle Channel Road.

Gravity sewer main construction, Warragul.

Construction is complete with the new pipeline in operation. We are now decommissioning old infrastructure including the old pump station and undertake reinstatement.. Read more about the project.

We're connecting the new main to the wastewater network. Impacted customers will be notified. Pedestrians please take care in the area.

Sale outfall sewer pump station construction.
The site has been commissioned and is operating. We are now decommissioning old infrastructure and will then begin demolition of the old pump station building. Read more about the project.

Drouin wastewater treatment plant upgrade.
Equipment continues to arrive and be installed on site. Read more about the project.

Regional Outfall System (ROS) upgrade at Marshalls Road, Traralgon
Construction works continue on the ROS pipeline.

Moe water treatment plant, second water storage basin construction
A new 25 megalitre water storage basin will be constructed at the site, to hold treated water to supply residents in Moe, Newborough and surrounding areas. The current basin is close to capacity and can't sustain long-term growth. Read more about the project.

Chemical dosing and building works have started. These works are expected to continue until the end of the year and will involve the replacement of treatment plant dosing systems and a building upgrade to accommodate this.
