We're investing in a number of innovative projects to deliver services which contribute to the health and wellbeing of current and future generations.
Waste to energy facility
In an Australian first, Yarra Valley Water has constructed a waste to energy facility linked to a sewage treatment plant. The purpose built facility will provide an environmentally friendly disposal solution for commercial organic waste. When the facility is fully commissioned in March 2017, it is expected that it will divert 33,000 tonnes of commercial food waste from landfill each year.
North Warrandyte Community Sewerage Project
Yarra Valley Water is investing over $300 million to bring sewer services to 17,000 properties by 2030. The $25 million portion of the project is expected to be completed in December 2016 and will allow residents of North Warrandyte to replace their current septic tank systems with environmentally friendly sewerage services.
Amaroo and Lockerbie Main Sewer
The Amaroo and Lockerbie Main Sewer projects involve building critical sewerage infrastructure to service proposed developments between Craigieburn and Wallan in Melbourne's northern growth corridor.
