Sewer works in the pipeline

Down and dirty: Trucks and men work to repair old sewers on Beach Rd near the Naples St intersection.

A PAIR of 80-year-old sewer mains in Beach Rd and Nepean Highway is being repaired as part of a $2.6 million upgrade.

South East Water is aiming to minimise disruption to residents in Mentone, Parkdale and Mordialloc over the eight-week project.

New lining will extend the life and increase the reliability of the sewers which service around 5600 properties in Mentone and Mordialloc and directly connect to more than 200 houses.

The works will be undertaken at night from Sunday to Thursday, when flows will be at their lowest, enabling crews to work safely in a “dry” sewer.

South East Water says directly affected residents will be notified before works start in their area.

Water and sewer services will not be impacted during the project.
