Critical works to ensure the reliability of Horsham’s sewer services will start in October.

To support the city’s growing population a GWMWater contractor will complete works on the Spry Court Sewer Rising Main, which connects pump stations on both sides of the Wimmera River to the Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Executive Manager Infrastructure Nalaka Vitharana said works along Wotonga Drive and Major Mitchell Drive from October to December 2022 would improve the resilience of Horsham’s wastewater network.

The works will mean that there will be increased traffic in the area with construction vehicles accessing the site, and a reduction in the available parking during some stages of the works is likely.

To ensure the public’s safety, the ANZAC Centenary Bridge that connects Barnes Boulevard and Major Mitchell Drive may need to be closed when works are being completed on the part of the main that is directly under the Wimmera River.

“GWMWater is committed to the ongoing improvement of services in our region,” Mr Vitharana said.

“As part of that commitment, we will invest in our infrastructure to make sure customers continue to receive reliable water and wastewater service.”

GWMWater is also planning works at sewer pump stations in seven towns across its service area as part of ongoing infrastructure upgrades. The water corporation has invited tenders for the refurbishment of sewer pump stations in Charlton, Dimboola, Donald, Horsham, Nhill, Sea Lake and Stawell.

“Being proactive in our approach to improvements and renewals across the network means that customers can expect fewer interruptions,” he said.
