Why is this project important?
The Eumemmerring Creek Main Sewer (EUM) was constructed in the 1980’s to transfer sewage from residential and trade waste customers in Dandenong, Berwick and Cranbourne to the Eastern Treatment Plant. It is at the end of its operational life and in need of renewal.
The upgrade will ensure the residents of Dandenong, Berwick and Cranbourne continue to receive a reliable sewerage service.
What are we doing
The sewer relining will occur along the existing sewer alignment for 599 meters. The manholes are located typically every 100m with the majority sitting within local road reserves and footpaths.
The sewer relining works will occur progressively working via 8 manholes situated along the alignment. Due to operating in live sewers, they can only be entered under low flow which occurs mostly at night time.
Concept development, planning and site investigations
Cleaning and CCTV works, Detailed design, stakeholder and community consultation
Night works will be required for most of the relining works when the sewer and traffic flows are at their lowest. This makes it the safest time for crews to be working in the busier streets and reduces the impact in the broader traffic network.
We will work closely with the community to plan for and manage any other impacts resulting from these works, and will communicate any impacts well in advance.
Keeping you informed
We will provide more information, including the timing of activities, as the project progresses and more information becomes available.
