South Gippsland Water is investing $12.8 million in upgrades – including two new pump stations –  to maintain its standard, safe, wastewater services that contribute to the health and liveability of Inverloch and its environment.

Managing Director, Robert Murphy, said the $12.8 million upgrade would ensure the current system copes with predicted growth, part of South Gippsland Water’s commitment to proactively plan for the future.

“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,” Mr Murphy said.

“This upgrade, which includes two new pump stations, is a significant investment in Inverloch and will make a real difference to the town.”

South Gippsland Water has previously worked with cultural heritage networks, completed fauna and flora studies and its contractors to ensure minimal impact on the environment and none on existing water and wastewater services during construction.

“Our team have worked to design these works, so they don’t occur during Inverloch’s busy summer period. But when the work gets underway in February 2023, we’ve got plans in place to minimise traffic and construction noise, as well as ensure water and wastewater services remain consistent,” Mr Murphy said.

Over the years, through nature alone, self-seeded trees have populated the areas, Inverloch residents may notice trees being cut down in preparation for the works in February. This has made vehicle access to the pumps impossible, which creates hindrances in emergency situations, such as power outages.

“I want to assure the community that we will be working with the public to rehabilitate the utility locations once the works are completed and make the spaces an amenity that the public can enjoy,” Mr Murphy

The works are happening on Veronica Street and Meanderri Drive. The new pump stations will be built adjacent to the existing facilities on utility locations.
