New Anglesea outfall pipeline towed into position

Anglesea’s new recycled water outfall pipeline was successfully installed at the weekend following a major land and sea operation. The outfall had been damaged earlier this year when a section of cliff collapsed.

Anglesea’s new recycled water outfall pipeline was successfully following a major land and sea operation.

Early on Sunday morning, the 700 metre welded polyethylene pipeline was moved on rollers and across the beach at Point Roadknight, attached to a boat and towed out to sea. The pipe was moved into position and lowered 10 m underwater to align with a pre-drilled bore hole. Finally, the pipe was pulled through the bore, emerging at the Anglesea water reclamation facility on the clifftop.

Work will continue at the reclamation plant to finalise the connection. The project is scheduled for completion before the busy summer holiday period.
