Craigieburn to Epping Sewage Transfer Project

We’re upgrading part of the sewerage network in Craigieburn, Wollert and Epping to ensure a reliable sewerage service for people in Melbourne’s growing northern suburbs. These upgrades will help reduce the likelihood of sewage spills during storm events, provide greater network efficiencies and increase our ability to produce more recycled water.

In Epping, we’re upgrading 15 metres of underground sewer pipes and building two new sewer maintenance holes on the north side of Oherns Road, between Cotters Road and Edgars Road.

Additional upgrade works will also take place at own property at the Cotters Road Sewage Pumping Station, located at 194 Oherns Road.
