Securing the Health and Wellbeing of Sale for the Next 50 Years

The communities of Sale in Victoria and the surrounding areas will soon benefit from a $11.5M (estimated) outfall sewer pump station that will significantly improve the sewer network.

With future population growth and a focus on prosperous, connected and sustainable communities, ensuring the quality of water and safety of wastewater collection and treatment is increasingly important for the wellbeing of future generations.


Gippsland Water has recently appointed WSP to provide functional and detailed design addressing the site constraints, safety and operational issues faced by the existing Sale Outfall Sewage Pump Station. Our team will assess the overall capacity of the 30km Sale-Longford-Dutson delivery system with a view to improve the reliability and ability to cater for wet weather events and future growth.


The strength of our multidisciplinary wastewater treatment team is demonstrated by our work on two of the largest wastewater treatment programs currently in Australia – Logan Water Infrastructure Alliance in QLD and Lower South Creek Treatment Program in NSW.


Meagan Salter, WSP’s VIC Water Team Manager says, “Our work to upgrade Gippsland Water’s  existing assets by designing a new pump station, ensure ongoing reliability of the wastewater system to meet current and future demands. In turn, this will enable Gippsland Water to  provide exceptional services to its customers and enhanced protection of the environment while at the same time ensuring safe wastewater collection for the thriving local communities.”
