North Warrandyte Sewerage Project

Yarra Valley Water is providing sewerage services in the North Warrandyte area.

North Warrandyte is located in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs along the northern banks of the Yarra River, and is approximately 30km from the Central Business District of Melbourne. Residents of North Warrandyte currently manage their wastewater via onsite systems. Nillumbik Shire Council identified approximately 1,000 properties that were unable to contain their wastewater on site all year round.

These properties in North Warrandyte are currently scheduled to be serviced by the North Warrandyte Sewerage Project. Some of the key benefits of the project include:

  • Improving the health of the waterways by decommissioning leaking septic tanks
  • Protecting public health
  • Reducing odours in the area
  • Providing a more liveable environment for the residents of North Warrandyte

The project has been divided into 7 work packages, as follows:

  • Three packages of street works and property connections (Packages A, B and C)
  • On-property pump installations (pressure sewer customers only)
  • Pressurised large sewerage (rising) main
  • Sewerage pumping station
  • Inverted siphon main

Did you know?

Poorly performing septic systems in your area are discharging 1,500 kilograms of nutrients and over 15 trillion viruses every year into your local environment. This nutrient discharge to our waterways is equivalent to dumping over 1,000 bags of fertilizer into our waterways each year! Excess nutrients harm aquatic life and can make waterway conditions toxic.

Poorly performing septic systems can also be a nuisance for you and your neighbours by creating unpleasant odour and soggy backyards.

    The following works packages have been completed:

    • Streetworks Package A
    • Streetworks Package B
    • Streetworks Package C
    • Pressurised large sewerage (rising) main
    • Sewage Pumping Station
    • Inverted siphon main


      Sewage Pumping Station 

      The construction of the sewage pumping station (SPS) at the corner of Research-Warrandyte Road and Professors Lane was completed in December 2016, and the site has since been landscaped. A local landscaping contractor will be maintaining the site for a two year period. The SPS services approximately 400 properties in North Warrandyte.

      Inverted siphon main 

      The inverted siphon main was completed in December 2016, and it connects the new sewer network with the existing Warrandyte sewerage network (south of the Yarra River). The new connecting sewer pipelines were bored beneath the Yarra River, in the vicinity of the Kangaroo Ground – Warrandyte Road Bridge.
