Major works to secure Moe's water supply completed

Gippsland Water has completed major works on its Tanjil River pump station, helping to secure future water supplies for Moe, Newborough, Yallourn North, Trafalgar and Yarragon customers.

Acting managing director Angelo Saridis said the $80,000 upgrade was completed in June after six months of work.

“The project involved replacing the 40-year-old wet well inlet valve at our Tanjil River pump station, which was critical to ensuring we can continue to deliver essential services to Moe and surrounding townships.”

Mr Saridis said the cooperation of local communities and partnering organisations helped enable works to be carried out smoothly.

“The project involved working with the West Gippsland Catchment Management Authority and Southern Rural Water to construct a coffer dam made of rock spalls, with sand bags and heavy-duty plastic sheeting around the intake.

“It also involved accessing nearby properties and we’d like to thank the local landholders for being so accommodating,” Mr Saridis said.

The Tanjil River pump station is a key part of the Moe water network, enabling the transfer of up to 24 megalitres of raw water to the Moe water treatment plant every day. The water is then treated to meet drinking water standards before being delivered to customers across Gippsland.

The project was completed by local contractors.
