Central Highlands Water has announced that the Ballarat Southern Trunk Sewer Project is progressing, with 50 per cent of the pipeline in Smythes Creek installed.

The $3 million investment involves the construction of the 1.78km, 600mm diameter trunk sewer pipeline made from glass reinforced polymer. 

The pipeline installation supports the Pinnacle and Cherryside Estates and, once complete, will be connected to the Cherry Flat Road Sewer Pump Station, as part of another separate project currently under construction.

The project will service the Ballarat West Growth Area, contributing to the City of Ballarat’s growth and forecast population to over 160,000 by 2040.

The pipeline is also expected to support future land development in the Ballarat West Growth Area, allowing for further residential housing construction in the Smythes Creek, Delacombe, Bonshaw and Winter Valley areas.

Central Highlands Water’s Managing Director, Jeff Haydon, said the company is pleased to share the positive progress on the pipeline.

“With the forecasted population growth in Ballarat, this pipeline will support further land development for residential housing in Smythes Creek, Delacombe, Bonshaw and Winter Valley, located within the Ballarat West Growth Area.”
