Central Highlands Water’s (CHW) $4 million pipeline will support local residential property growth and transfer any excess wastewater from the Cardigan Wastewater Treatment Plant to the Ballarat sewer network. 

With strong growth to the west of Ballarat, this initiative will provide long-term sustainability and management of wastewater for the region. This project will also provide opportunities for expanded recycled water use to properties along the pipeline route in the future. 

CHW’s Managing Director, Jeff Haydon, said that this connection between the Cardigan Wastewater Treatment Plant and the existing network, increases capacity, reliability and efficiency by allowing for the management of greater volumes within the region.  

“CHW currently operates a recycled water scheme of some 35ha which typically reuses over 30 million litres of water each year for productive agricultural reuse at the Cardigan farm,” Mr Haydon said.  

“The new pipeline runs from the Cardigan Wastewater Treatment Plant, along Chisholmes Road and Cuthberts Road, and joins into the existing sewer network near the Cuthberts Road and Finchs Road intersection. 

“We would like to thank the local residents and property owners for their support and cooperation during the installation of the 4.7km-long pipeline. 

“This is a great example of how we are continuing to meet the current water management needs of our communities and industries, as well as supporting the growth opportunities of the Central Highlands region.”
