Colac and Apollo Bay water restrictions lifted

Stage 3 water restrictions will be lifted in Colac, Apollo Bay, Marengo and Skenes Creek. The change is effective from 1 am, this Friday 10 June 2016.

The move follows a month of consistent rainfall that has boosted supplies.

West Gellibrand Reservoir, which supplies Colac, received 232 mm during May, well above the monthly average of 120 mm. Colac’s storages are currently 48.0% full.

Apollo Bay also had a wet May, with 172 mm recorded. This was almost double the monthly mean of 89 mm. Apollo Bay’s storages are now at 62.7% capacity.

From Friday, simple, common-sense and permanent water saving rules will apply across our entire service region.
