Upgrades in the pipeline

The Barwon Heads sewer pipeline will soon be upgraded to provide the community with secure and affordable water and sewerage services.

Work on the sewer pipeline alignment between the Barwon River and the Barwon Heads pump station on the Geelong and Barwon Heads Road will begin mid-February.

Barwon Water planning, delivery and environment general manager Seamus Butcher said construction was expected to be completed by late 2024.

“The works will see infrastructure upgraded to prevent sewer spills in the future, protect the environment and maintain reliable sewerage services,” he said.

“We invite the community to come to our dedicated information session on February 8 and learn more about the project, where we will be working and what to expect during construction.

“We thank the local Barwon Heads community for their support and will do all we can to minimise impacts and keep the local community informed.”

Barwon Water said it understood that the works would impact residents, businesses, the Village Park, and Barwon Heads visitors and appreciated the community’s understanding.

A community drop-in session will be held at the Barwon Heads Bowling Club, on the corner of Sheepwash and Geelong Roads, between 5.30pm and 7.30pm on February 8.

Project team members will be available during the session to provide detailed project information, like timelines, and to answer any community questions.
