We maintain and operate over 19,000 kilometres of water and sewer mains, 53 water supply tanks and nine sewage treatment plants. We regularly conduct maintenance to provide you with the highest quality water and sewerage services, and deliver works in a way that has minimal effect on the environment.
Community Sewerage Program
Because many homes in Melbourne were built before sewerage was available, more than 14,000 properties in the northern and eastern suburbs are still using septic tank systems. We're providing these properties with a sustainable sewerage solution.
