Community Sewerage Program

The Community Sewerage Program will provide properties in Melbourne’s outer north and east with new access to sewerage infrastructure.

Because many homes in Melbourne were built before sewerage was available, more than 14,000 properties in the outer northern and eastern suburbs are still using septic tank systems. 

Many of these septic tank systems do not meet current standards and they are a potential risk to public health, local waterways and the environment.

The Yarra Valley Water Community Sewerage Program is working to provide these properties with a sustainable sewerage solution. More than $400 million is being spent on the program. 

Check to see if your area is on the Program.

If your area isn't listed, please visit our easyAccess portal for advice on developing your property.
