Wastewater Services

We manage more than 1,000 kilometres of sewer mains across the region. These mains collect household, commercial and industrial waste from more than 40,000 homes, businesses and factories, and transport it to our wastewater treatment plants for treatment.

Our treatment plants vary from lagoon-based treatment systems in the small hamlets of Barnawartha and Bundalong, to modern tertiary treatment plants at Wangaratta, Wodonga and Mt Beauty.

The performance of our treatment plants is continuously monitored. All wastewater effluent discharges are sampled and tested for various parameters on a monthly basis to monitor compliance with Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) discharge licence conditions. The results of this monitoring are contained in the Annual Performance Report that is submitted to the EPA annually in August.
