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).

Mirboo North rising main replacement

The Mirboo North rising main was over 70 years old and needed replacing. The water main had reached the end of its expected life, so rather than continue to patch up leaks and bursts, we replaced the entire pipe.

The pipe also ran along and under the Strzelecki Highway which caused disruptions to traffic whenever maintenance or repair work was needed. Where practical, we changed the alignment of the pipe so that it is off the Strzelecki Highway.
