Artist impression of the new Lowood Sewage Treatment Plant with established landscaping
Urban Utilities has invested $45 million to upgrade the sewerage system for the towns of Lowood and Fernvale to cater for future growth and development in the area.
We are excited to announce as part of the finalisation of the Lowood Fernvale Sewer Upgrade Project the landscaping of the area outside the new Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) on Forest Hill Fernvale Road was completed in June 2023.
The landscaping has been placed in the area indicated in red in the map below. For an example of what to expect, please see the artist impression above.
What can I expect?
As the landscaping has now been completed it will be maintained by for a further 12 months and then passed to the Council for ongoing care.
