Our sandy soil means that contaminated water doesn’t come straight to the surface. It seeps through the sand into the groundwater and can find its way to into our beautiful bays and beaches. The odour from failing tanks can be found in the air around them and rich green grass can be seen as the waste water feeds the immediate surrounding area.
South East Water is proud to be delivering the largest pressure sewer construction in Australian history and, as a result, offering a permanent sewer solution to all home owners within the project areas in Portsea, Sorrento, Blairgowrie, Rye and St Andrews Beach.
Families who have already connected are enjoying our hassle-free system, with the world’s leading technology created and built right here in Victoria by South East Water. Some property owners are also exploring opportunities to use their freed-up land and match their properties to their lifestyles.
