Water mains cleaning works, Bendigo and surrounding towns
- Bendigo, Axedale, Huntly, Marong, Raywood, Sebastian
We are currently carrying out routine water mains cleaning works of the Bendigo water supply network.
This work is an important part of our regular maintenance program to ensure the drinking water we supply to our customers continues to be safe.
The works will not impact the flow or pressure of customers' water supply. Some customers may notice slight changes to the taste and odour of the drinking water.
The water remains safe to drink and meets Australian drinking water guidelines.
Please read our Frequently Asked Questions here.
Cohuna Water Treatment Plant project
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.
Cohuna Water Tower works
A small section of concrete render from the Cohuna Water Treatment Plant elevated water tank has fallen away.
The debris fell on Coliban Water owned land and presents no danger to the public.
We are investigating the cause of the damage, however at this point in time we believe it is non-structural.
There is no risk to your water quality or supply.
For the safety of our staff we have erected a fence around the tower.
