Korumburra gets an upgrade

Thursday, December 1st, 2022

South Gippsland Water has commenced a $6 million upgrade of Korumburra’s sewer system.

Korumburra is experiencing significant growth. We have designed this upgrade to accommodate this growth and improve the system’s capability in significant wet weather events.

Managing Director Robert Murphy said the first stage of the project had already commenced.

“We’re installing 900 metres of new pipe at the western end of Bena Road, down to the inlet works at our treatment plant,” he said.

“This involves a 20-metre temporary construction corridor to allow our contractors to complete the work without interrupting the public.”

“You may notice increased truck movement around Bena Road over the coming months. We expect that the work will be finished by April next year, depending on the weather.”
