Major water and wastewater projects

Major Projects

Our major projects help deliver water security, minimise disruption to service, and allow for future growth in Gippsland.

Our 2018-23 price submission to the Essential Services Commission (ESC), established 10 major projects. Watch the video below for an update from our team on these projects, including what the projects involve and when we expect them to be completed.

We’ve maintained a flexible approach to undertaking these projects, making adaptations to ensure the projects are fit for purpose and deliver value for our customers.

Watch our team update you on how we’re tracking on these projects (video produced in July 2021).

Reliable water supply for Coongulla and Glenmaggie

We are securing Coongulla and Glenmaggie’s water supply by installing a pipeline to connect the townships to Heyfield’s water system.

This project will result in a more reliable service to the towns. Coongulla and Glenmaggie residents’ water is currently sourced from Lake Glenmaggie, which has proven to be a less-than-reliable water source. Installing a water distribution main to deliver water from Heyfield will address both quality and reliability issues.

Secure water for Warragul and Drouin - western ring main project

We’re building a major new water main on the western side of Warragul to increase the volume and security of water supplies for the growing towns of Warragul and Drouin.

The pipeline will provide an alternative supply line for maintenance or emergency work on the existing Warragul mains, avoiding interruptions to customers’ water supply, link Drouin to the new Moe-Warragul interconnect, which gives the security of being able to provide water from multiple sources, and facilitate growth in Drouin and the south-west corridor of Warragul.
