Minor sewer spill Stratford

Following recent heavy rains in and around the Stratford area, Gippsland Water has reported a minor sewer spill to the Environment Protection Authority.

The spill of partially treated waste water took place at the Gippsland Water lagoon system approximately two kilometres outside Stratford.

A small amount of partially treated waste water has spilled from lagoons into grassed paddocks joining flood waters from surrounding paddocks and roadside drains.

The spill poses no threat to the community.

Work is being done to minimise any impact and pumping is currently lowering lagoon levels.
