YVW – Epping Branch Sewer - Section 2
Yarra Valley Water is constructing the Epping Branch Sewer to service new development in the Epping North catchment. It is part of the broader Epping Craigieburn Sewerage Strategy. Epping Branch Sewer is a gravity sewer following a generally south-west alignment from O’Herns Rd, Epping to Barry Rd in Campbellfield. This project consists of the construction of Epping Branch Sewer Section 2, which extends from just east of the Hume Freeway (near THE City of Whittlesea Public Gardens) through the proposed developments to the proposed Melbourne Wholesale Fruits and Vegetable Markets Development. It includes 2km of DN1000 Hobas & GRP pipe and associated manholes up to depths of 15m constructed in basalt by a combination of conventional trenched and trenchless techniques.
