South East Water is delivering for Noble Park customers with a major upgrade to the Mile Creek sewer, with the final phase of works started in mid-June.
The project is being delivered by Zinfra, Jaydo, WSP (ZJW) Joint Venture partners as part of South East Water’s proactive infrastructure program. The upgrade involves building a new relief sewer, increasing the capacity of the network, while also reducing the likelihood of surcharges and spills during wet weather events, so customers can continue to have safe and reliable wastewater services every day and night.
This project is made up of 3 phases, with construction of phase 1 on Ebden Street recently completed. Initial sections of Phase 2 along Callandar Road to Ellendale Rd, and Phase 3 from Kelvinside Rd to Corrigan Rd have already begun.
South East Water General Manager Liveable Water Solutions, Charlie Littlefair said the project was one of the biggest sewer upgrades happening in the south-east this year, supporting the area’s growing population.
“We’re proud to be making big progress on this project to deliver a more reliable service for Noble Park customers, now and into the future.
“We’re investing over $180 million per year on proactive infrastructure upgrades across our network. These upgrades will not only improve service reliability but also optimise our organisation’s operations with reduced ongoing maintenance and repair costs.”

South East Water expects to complete the final phase of Mile Creek sewer works by December 2023. Customers who live in the area might notice some changes in traffic conditions, the presence of work trucks and some noise from the construction.
There are no planned interruptions to water or sewer services during these works. Customers who experience a disruption to their services can call the 24/7 Faults and Emergencies team on 13 28 12.
South East Water manages $4.8 billion of water and sewer assets, including 11,230 km of sewer pipes. Crews work around the clock to make sure our customers always have fresh water from the tap, and wastewater is taken away safely.
