We constructed a duplicate sewer main from Holts Lane, Darley to our outfall sewer south of Bacchus Marsh Road.
Town(s): Bacchus Marsh
Expected Completion Date: Completed
What did the project involve?
Western Water constructed a 2.5km sewer main to transfer sewage from Holts Lane, Darley, to the sewer network south of Bacchus Marsh Road. The duplicate sewer was built near the existing sewer main, which was constructed in the 1960s and was nearing capacity.
Why was the project needed?
The sewer pipeline was constructed to ensure Western Water could meet the increased demand for essential sewer services. The existing sewer continues to be used alongside the new sewer.
Why was the construction alignment chosen?
The alignment was chosen as it was next to an existing sewer pipeline, which ran predominantly through agricultural land and away from built-up residential areas, thereby minimising impacts to residents during construction.
