Investment for a strong community
Gippsland Water is continuing its investment in improving services for customers across its service area with more than $13.4 million spent in the last financial year.
“We’ve had a busy year providing service to customers as well as planning for the future and delivering projects to meet future demand,”said General Manager of Customer Services & Communications at Gippsland Water, Paul Clark.
“Water and sewerage services are among the most critical of amenities and we take great pride in being able to contribute to supporting the growth of our local communities,” he continued.
In recent years Gippsland Water has invested in both sewerage and water infrastructure in the Wellington and Baw Baw Shires as well as the Latrobe City.
“Some of our bigger projects include investment in the Warragul wastewater treatment plant as well as a major upgrade of Drouin’s wastewater treatment plant which treats around two million litres of wastewater per day. We’ve also delivered a second water supply line for the Sale community as well as replacement of a 50 year old sewer line at Yallourn North”, added Mr Clark.
“A lot of what we do remains out of sight and therefore, out of mind, but the reality is that we are always working to ensure communities are able to grow and the supporting infrastructure is done right,” concluded Mr. Clark.
Further works planned for the 2016-2017 include the second and final stage of the Warragul-Moe water supply interconnect project which will improve water supply security for customers in Trafalgar and Warragul.
Investment in Morwell to improve the capability of the Crinigan Road Sewer Pump station during major wet weather events and works in Heyfield to improve current water pressure levels for customers along Mustons Lane and further planning for a new sewer pump station in Sale.
