Monbulk Sewerage ProjectAfter consulting with the community, then designing and planning a system suited to the area, Yarra Valley Water is constructing a modern sewerage service in Monbulk.
Once complete, most properties in the Monbulk community will have the option to connect to the sewer, press the flush button and let Yarra Valley Water take care of your wastewater.
To better manage the number of properties connecting to the new sewerage system, they have split this project into four stages of work.
For property owners in the Monbulk Community Sewerage area, now is the time to organise the design and installation of the necessary equipment, a pressure sewer unit, on your property.

Yarra Valley Water is constructing a piped sewerage system for Monbulk Community Sewerage Area. Sewerage pipes in the streets will connect to your property and the sewage will be taken away to a sewage treatment plant. A piped sewerage system will provide a healthier and more efficient sewerage solution for Monbulk now and in the future.
Most streets in the southern section of Stage 3 are complete, with pipes in the ground and connection points installed to each property on the program. We’re now focussing on the final northern section along Monbulk and Carcoola Roads. Construction of the booster pump station on Moxhams Road will start in early 2022. Booster pump stations are an essential part of pressure sewerage systems, especially in hilly areas. They give sewage flow an added ‘boost’ to keep it moving through the sewerage system.
Yarra Valley Water has constructed seven out of nine kilometres of pipes in Stage 4. They expect to finish installing sewer pipes in the streets by early in the New Year. After this, focusing on installing the remaining 200 property connection points.
