Apollo Bay water storage completed

Residents of the Apollo Bay region can now enjoy a secure water supply and an end to summer water restrictions with the completion of a new $22 million water storage basin.

Member for Polwarth The Hon Terry Mulder MP toured the new 250-million litre storage basin today and said it was now ready to be filled by winter rains.

The new storage basin and transfer system will secure the water supply of Apollo Bay, Marengo and Skenes Creek until 2055.

The basin is great news for the Apollo Bay community, with the increased storage capacity meaning residents will have a reliable supply year-round.

Importantly, it also means the end of summer water restrictions, which had been necessary to cope with the seasonal influx of thousands of holidaymakers.

A community open day at the storage basin will be held later this year.
