End is near for sewerage


SINCE construction of the Poowong, Loch and Nyora Sewerage Scheme began in July 2014 the three towns have been a hive of activity.

The pressure system, a joint arrangement between South Gippsland Water and South East Water, will connect the three towns to South East Water’s Lang Lang water recycling plant to address public health and environment issues from aging, failing and poorly maintained septic systems.

South Gippsland Water reports significant progress with construction of the reticulation sewer pipe network in each town complete.

The whole system is expected to be operational mid year.

Connections began in Nyora in November 2014, however these will pause until the transfer pipeline and pumps linking Nyora to the Lang Lang treatment plant are complete.

Nyora connections are planned to recommence in April 2015 and continue whilst ground conditions allow.

The transfer pipelines connecting Poowong and Loch to Nyora are complete.

Work on pump stations and valves to complete the system will continue in 2015.  

However, given connection to the sewer requires significant on-site works and earthmoving, connections for Poowong and Loch are unlikely to begin until dry weather and ground conditions improve in October/November 2015.

On-site consultations for Poowong and Loch are expected to commence from August 2015.

Home owners in Nyora are reminded to book in their consultation now if not already completed).

Call the Connections Team on 1800 728 256 to book.

 Progress: connection to the system requires significant earth moving works as seen here at the Nyora Primary School.
