Community Update for Poowng Loch and Nyora Residents - February/March    PLN Community Update Feb 2014

South Gippsland Water has  a community update for the residents of Poowong, Loch and Nyora regarding the Sewerage Scheme. Click Here to view a copy.

Sewerage Review Complete - Poowong, Loch & Nyora

South Gippsland Water has completed the review of the Poowong, Loch and Nyora Sewerage Scheme. The scheme is required to address existing public health and environment issues. The key review outcomes are that a pressure sewer system is to be installed for all three towns with wastewater transferred under agreement to South East Water for treatment and re-use. In addition, much of the area originally proposed to be sewered will now be serviced, albeit under a tiered structure encompassing two service areas. There will be an $800 Service Area incorporating the central town areas which will address the public health and environment issues and a $5,000 Voluntary Service Area which generally reflects the wider township area including larger sized allotments.  The wider network of sewer pipelines will enable connection of most township properties.  A joint arrangement between South Gippsland Water and South East Water has been found to be the most economical and efficient option, potentially allowing customer connections as early as 2016.
