Why was the project needed?

The sewer pipeline was constructed to ensure we meet the increased demand for essential sewer services.

Diggers Rest is growing at a steady rate, with much of the growth to the west of the township—at the St Genevieve and Bloomdale residential developments.

The project complements the $53 million upgrade to the Sunbury RWP, which ensures the plant can cope with increased sewage flows from population growth in both Diggers Rest and Sunbury.
