Bostock Reservoir upgrade

Work on a $1.3 million upgrade of Bostock Reservoir, near Ballan, is about to begin.

The reservoir will be temporarily closed to the public next week from Tuesday 12 to Friday 15 March 2013. Anglers please note: fishing in the reservoir is prohibited during this period as divers complete specialist work. Construction will continue after this time, but we will maintain public access for fishing and picnicking.

Bostock reservoir will be temporarily closed to the public next week. There will be no access for fishing or picnicking.

The upgrade involves replacing a 280 metre pipeline under the reservoir embankment and an underwater valve. The project will increase supply to the Upper Stony Creek reservoirs which in turn supply the greater Geelong region.

This project is being delivered by the Barwon Water Alliance. It is expected to be completed in mid-2013.
