Sewer scheme gath­ers steam

McIvor Times - - NEWS -

PRE­LIM­I­NARY sur­vey works are un­der­way in ar­eas of Heathcote as part of Coliban Wa­ter’s Heathcote Sewer Scheme Project.

The $5.8 mil­lion project will ex­pand the local sewer net­work and en­sure more of the Heathcote com­mu­nity re­ceive safe and en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly sew­er­age ser­vices.

Gen­eral man­ager of ser­vice de­liv­ery and in­fra­struc­ture Neville Pearce said res­i­dents in af­fected ar­eas re­ceived for­mal no­ti­fi­ca­tion ear­lier this month about the pro­posed align­ment and sur­vey works.

“We also held a Your Town ses­sion in July, pro­vid­ing an op­por­tu­nity for the com­mu­nity to find out more about the project and pro­vide feed­back,” he said.

“This con­sul­ta­tion and feed­back has helped form the out­line we now have for the pro­posed sew­er­age sys­tem.

“The next step is to un­der­take pre­lim­i­nary sur­vey work that will pro­vide more de­tailed in­for­ma­tion about the land, veg­e­ta­tion and un­der­ground ser­vices that are within the vicin­ity of the po­ten­tial pipe­line align­ments.”

The sewer scheme ex­ten­sion will take in parts of Ben­nett St, Redleaf Close and the Ar­gyle area in Heathcote.
