Rehabilitating Korumburra Water Treatment Plant site

Wednesday, November 25th, 2020

South Gippsland Water is decommissioning the old Korumburra Water Treatment Plant, next to Korumburra Golf Course.

Korumburra has been connected to the Lance Creek Water Treatment supply system, as part of the larger Lance Creek Water Connection Project, completed in 2018.

This means the Korumburra Water Treatment Plant is no longer in use.

South Gippsland Water Managing Director Philippe du Plessis said the plan was to rehabilitate and landscape the site to make it safe.

“Works will get underway around 7 December, with an expected finish date of March 2021,” he said.

“There will be no impact to Korumburra’s water supply or on our water arrangements with the golf course. However, some residents may hear some normal construction noise during the works.

“We will endeavour to minimise this by only working on the site during business hours, and certainly not through the Christmas holiday period.”

Mr du Plessis said the works included removing mechanical and electrical equipment to make the site safe, demolishing ageing infrastructure associated with the site and landscaping.
