The $8.6 million upgrade includes the installation of an 11-kilometre pipeline connecting the Twelve Apostles Visitor Centre toilets to the Port Campbell Sewage Treatment Plant, ensuring Environmental Protection Authority standards are met as visitor numbers continue to rise.
The works also includes the installation of:
· new sewer and water mains
· a new Sewage Pump Station and Detention Storage Tanks at the Visitor Centre
· a new water pump station at Port Campbell
· new aerators at the Port Campbell Water Retention Plant
Using directional boring technology, the pipeline is being installed along the shoulder of the Great Ocean Road, minimising environmental impact, and reducing vegetation removal in the road reserve and Port Campbell National Park during construction.
The project has provided income for the local economy with contractors utilising accommodation providers and supporting local businesses. Planit has worked with Wannon Water to provide superintendent services including site meetings, site inspections, contractor payments, on-site direction and compliance.
