Kallista Sewerage Project Stage 2
Yarra Valley Water is investigating the sewerage servicing needs of properties in Sherbrooke, Kallista and The Patch
We have been working with Yarra Ranges Shire Council to identify areas in Sherbrooke, Kallista, and The Patch that are currently operating on septic systems. Due to the characteristics of the land, wastewater may not be contained within an individual’s property boundaries. As a result, the sewage can flow off properties and pose a risk to public health and the environment. The project will be investigated and designed in three packages:
- Package A
Includes parts of The Patch (West)
- Package B
Includes parts of The Patch (West) and Kallista
- Package C
Includes parts of Sherbrooke and Kallista (West)
We are in the planning stages of this project, which will provide sewerage services to designated properties in parts of Sherbrooke, Kallista and The Patch.
This project will provide numerous benefits to the area, including:
• Improving the health of local waterways
• Protecting public health
• Reducing odours in the area
• Offering a more liveable environment for the community.
The infrastructure required to transfer sewage from these areas is under construction as part of the Kallista Sewerage Project Stage 1. For more information, refer Kallista Sewerage Project Stage 1.
Did you know?
Poorly performing septic systems can be a nuisance for you and your neighbours by creating unpleasant odour and soggy backyards.
Letters were sent this month, advising residents and property owners within the project area about providing a connection point to the proposed piped pressure sewerage pipes to be built as part of the Community Sewerage Program.
We will be at the Kallista Community Market if you would like to see us in person to talk about the project. Details for the market are as follows:
Date: Saturday, 7 September 2019
Time: 9:00am to 1:00pm
Location: 2 Church Street, Kallista
Detailed design for all packages of Kallista Sewerage Project Stage 2 will commence in April 2019.
Land Capability Assessments of all properties within the investigation area are almost complete and results will be known shortly.
