100 year old water mains to be upgraded in York Street

Gippsland Water will soon commence the second stage of a $2.8m project to replace water mains along York Street in Sale.

The first stage of the project, replacing mains between Fitzroy St and Raglan St, will be completed in February.

The second stage will replace the 100 year old water main system between Foster St and Macarthur St.

Currently, the water mains run through the centre median of the road. The new water mains will be installed on either side of the road, improving water quality and reducing the potential for burst water mains along the busy thoroughfare.

There may be minor traffic disruptions and reduced speed limits while the work is completed.

Gippsland Water thanks the community for their patience while the works are carried out.

Customers directly impacted by the works will be notified by mail.

Customers seeking further information can call the Gippsland Water Customer Contact Centre on 1800 050 500.
