Stage 2 water restrictions will be lifted in Apollo Bay, Marengo and Skenes Creek effective from tomorrow, Sunday 29 April 2012 .
The commonsense Permanent Water Saving Plan will apply in place of the restrictions. The Plan will apply across our entire service region.
Restrictions have been required through the warmer months due to the limited capacity of the Marengo basin and the added demand from the summer tourist influx.
Staged restrictions will be a thing of the past when the supply is boosted by a new 250-million litre storage, complementing the existing 125-million litre basin.
Plans for the new storage are well advanced, with construction scheduled to begin this year and due for completion mid-2014.
