Wollert Recycled Water Project
We are constructing new recycled water pipes in Wollert to ensure future residential developments in Epping North, Wollert, Mernda and South Morang can receive a reliable supply of recycled water.
The new recycled water pipe will be constructed within the nature strip, under footpaths, and within the service lane along the north side of Harvest Home Road (between Edenvale Boulevard and Epping Road), as well as within the service lane (between Redrock Road and Silverstone Circuit).
Construction is expected to start from the Edenvale Boulevard end in early June 2017. The works should take about six months, and construction is scheduled to be completed in early 2018, subject to good weather and ground conditions.
These works will not affect water, recycled water and sewerage services in the area.
Despite best efforts to minimise the impacts of these works on the local community, nearby residents will at times notice construction noise, dust, and minor traffic disruptions. Driveway access will be maintained at all times, and a Council-approved traffic management plan will be in effect to ensure workers, pedestrians and motorists are safe.
The area where our pipe will be constructed has been selected because it involves removing the fewest trees, and avoids underground services (such as water pipes, gas mains, and telecommunications cables).
Some bushes will need to be removed to complete our works, and we’ve gained the necessary approvals to do so. When we’ve finished constructing the new pipe, we’ll plant new bushes and reinstate any areas damaged by our works.
