Bringing recycled water to Dingley, Oakleigh South, Sandringham and Cheltenham for use in peri-urban agriculture, nurseries and the irrigation of public open spaces and golf courses.

South East Water is currently in the planning stages of the Dingley Recycled Water Scheme, which will deliver recycled water to more than 45 sites in the suburbs of Dingley, Oakleigh South, Sandringham and Cheltenham. Supplying local parks, world-class golf courses, sporting ovals, laundromats, market gardens and nurseries, the scheme will help preserve drinking water supply, regardless of changing climate conditions.

Recently the Victorian Government announced part funding for the scheme as part of the delivery of the Central and Gippsland Regional Sustainable Water strategy, which aims to improve water security, liveability and waterway health for the next 40 years.

At a cost of $72 million, the scheme will be part funded by South East Water. 

Scheme stages 

The scheme will involve the design and construction of a transfer main to bring recycled water from the Eastern Treatment Plant to service the identified locations.

Upon completion of the transfer main, reticulation pipes will be installed to the various locations resulting in 42km of pipeline in total constructed.

It is anticipated that recycled water will be available for use within the next five years.

Investigative works

We’ve undertaken some investigative works along the route of the proposed scheme and will undertake further investigative works in selected areas in July 2022.
