Echuca Water Treatment Plant sludge removal

  • Echuca Water Treatment Plant

We are planning to remove sludge from the Echuca Water Treatment Plant from Monday 12 April for 2 weeks. 

We intend to transport it by truck to a nearby landfill, which means residents may notice some noise and dust from heavy vehicle movements during this time. We will have a water truck on standby for dust suppression. 

We have put measures in place to minimise any odour that might occur.

Nearby residents have been notified. 

Water mains cleaning, Malmsbury, Goornong, Axedale, Junortoun and Eaglehawk

  • Malmsbury, Goornong, Axedale, Junortoun, Eaglehawk

We will be carrying out water mains cleaning works in Malmsbury, Goornong, Axedale, Junortoun and Eaglehawk in April 2021.

The works use a technique called air scouring that removes the natural build-up of sediment that can cause discolouration.

The works will result in some minor interruptions to customers’ water supply.

Affected customers will be notified prior to the works starting. 

The works are part of our routine maintenance program to ensure customers continue to receive safe drinking water that meets the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.

Our contractor for the works is H&S. 

Cohuna Water Treatment Plant project

  • Cohuna

Fluoride will soon be added to Cohuna's water supply, aimed at improving dental health in the region. 

We have been carrying out works at the Cohuna Water Treatment Plant (WTP) to prepare for this change. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has directed us to add fluoride to the drinking water supply at the Cohuna WTP. 

The system will soon be ready for use. We expect to begin supplying fluoridated water to customers in Cohuna in early 2021. We will send out notifications to customers prior to the system being turned on.

Please ring our Customer Support Team on 1300 363 200 or call DHHS on 1300 761 874.

Standpipe transition project

  • Coliban Water region

We are working to transfer the management of standpipes back to Coliban Water as some are currently council-operated. 

These changes will mean more consistent service and fair pricing for users across our region. 

Standpipes in Sutton Street, Echuca and Campaspe Street, Rochester are now managed by Coliban Water.

Works were completed on these standpipes in August 2020 to install the Avdata system.

We are currently working with Central Goldfields Shire to transition ownership and operations of the Dunolly and Bealiba standpipes back to Coliban Water. 

Once complete, anyone wishing to use a Coliban Water-operated standpipe will be required to register as a water carter and purchase an Avdata key, if you haven’t already done so.

Lagoon maintenance works, Kyneton

  • Kyneton Water Reclamation Plant

We are planning to remove sludge from our trade waste lagoon at the Kyneton Water Reclamation Plant. 

Routine removal of this sludge provides increased efficiency and sees an improvement in the treatment process.

These works will take place in two stages - the first of which will start Monday 16 November 2020. 

The second stage is planned for early 2021. 

We have put measures in place to minimise any odour that might occur.

Nearby residents have been notified.
