Mirboo North rising main replacement

Planned completion date: June 2020

The Mirboo North rising main is over 70 years old and needs replacing. The existing water main has reached the end of its expected life, so rather than continue to patch up leaks and bursts, we are replacing the entire pipe.

The existing pipe also runs along and under the Strzelecki Highway which causes disruptions to traffic whenever maintenance or repair work is needed. Where practical, we are changing the alignment of the pipe so that it is off the Strzelecki Highway.

We’re constructing a new sewer main to improve the flow of wastewater in Traralgon. The new pipe will connect to the existing sewer pump station in Breed Street and allow us to pump wastewater more efficiently. This new rising main is the first stage of a long term project to improve the capacity of Traralgon’s sewer network.

Vapour testing Morwell's sewers

Planned completion date: Spring 2019

In autumn and winter 2019, we tested parts of the Morwell sewer system. We wanted to make sure there were no leaks or poor connections that could cause wastewater overflows and create a health hazard.

The testing showed a number of private properties had faulty sewer connections that could allow stormwater to enter the sewer system.

It's important that action is taken to fix any issue.
