Geelong sewer works almost complete

Innovative technology continues to pay dividends as the rehabilitation of one of Geelong’s oldest and most critical sewer mains is on schedule, with minimal disruption to customers.

The 100-year old reinforced concrete main contributes significantly to the health and prosperity of the region by transferring much of Geelong’s wastewater to the Black Rock water reclamation plant for treatment.

Maintenance on our critical assets is fundamentally important to the future of the region. By utilising new technological advances, we’ve been able to significantly minimise disruptions and impacts on customers.

The complex underground work has been completed without the need for heavy machinery digging up roads and footpaths. Regular water and sewerage services have not been impacted, and we’ve worked to minimise disruption as much as possible.

Work to clean and reline the sewer along Malop Street, between Moorabool and Bellerine streets, was completed earlier this year. The project is due for completion by the end of the year.
