Inverloch Sewer upgrades commencing this week

Monday, April 3rd, 2023

As announced late last year, South Gippsland Water is investing $12.8 million in sewer upgrades for the growing town of Inverloch.

After preparing the site last December, we are pleased to announce that the works are officially commencing this week on Meanderri Drive. Works at Veronica Street are set to commence in our next phase in early June.

Managing Director, Robert Murphy, said the upgrades would ensure the current system copes with predicted growth, part of South Gippsland Water’s commitment to proactively plan for the future of our towns and protect the environment. “Maintaining safe wastewater systems is one of the outcomes our customers have clearly told us they want us to invest in, to ensure our towns’ future sustainability and liveability.

“This upgrade, which includes two new pump stations, is a significant investment in Inverloch and will make a real difference to the town’s systems” he said. The works are happening on Veronica Street and Meanderri Drive. The new pump stations will be built adjacent to the existing facilities.

From this week, our contractor, Delplant, is preparing to commence construction at Meanderri Drive (Lindsey Close). Over the next fortnight, they will be completing sheet piling works to stabilise the excavation. This may involve some noise and vibrations.

Other major works to follow include bulk excavation and the delivery and installation of emergency storage and pump station units.

To minimise the impact of works on neighbours, we will only be operating from 7am-4pm, and will not be completing any works on weekends or public holidays. Neighbouring residents will continue to be updated through door knocks and letter drops. Customers who would like to be involved in plans on how to rebuild the utility land once works come to a close, are asked to email to be placed on our registrar to stay up to date on when community consultation commences.
