Project background
Managing the impacts associated with small town sewage has been identified as a high priority for the region. The cost of a reticulated sewerage system can be prohibitive, and private septic systems are often inadequate or not effectively maintained.

Wannon Water, Southern Grampians Shire Council, Moyne Shire Council and the Great South Coast Integrated Water Management Forum have formed a project team to explore solutions for the Cudgee and Penshurst communities.

Reasons for the project
Moyne Shire has recently completed a Domestic Wastewater Management Plan which shows Cudgee has a high risk of failure of onsite domestic wastewater systems. The town is bisected by Brucknell Creek which is subject to flooding, increasing the risk of septic effluent moving beyond property boundaries and into the creek. The lack of sewerage services is also constraining further development.
