We will construct a new sewer pipeline beneath the Anglesea River, rather than repair the damaged pipe.
The new pipe will be laid by boring below the river bed, minimising the impact on local residents, visitors and the environment.
Work will begin within weeks and is scheduled to be completed by Christmas.
In the meantime, we are constructing a temporary, above-ground bypass, crossing the river between Coogoorah Park and Wray Street.
We will continue to transport sewage from west Anglesea by truck to the water reclamation plant, and recycled water from Aireys Inlet to the Anglesea and Lorne facilities.
The temporary pipe will follow existing walking tracks. Some paths in Coogoorah Park will be fenced off during construction.
We would like to thank Anglesea residents for their patience and apologise for any disruption caused during construction.
If you have any comments, concerns or questions, please contact us.
