Lorne reservoir upgraded

Lorne's Allen Reservoir has been given a $900,000 upgrade.

The outlet tower — that collects water from the reservoir and transfers it to the treatment plant — has been replaced, and the tower can now be operated remotely.

The upgrade allows operators to choose at what depth the water is taken from the reservoir, which has already resulted in higher quality intake water.

Lorne's water quality has improved thanks to a $900,000 upgrade to the Allen Reservoir.

The 222 million litre reservoir, built in 1958, is Lorne's sole water source of drinking water. This upgrade will improve security and services to Lorne and reflects advances in water supply operations. The project demonstrates Barwon Water's commitment to deliver quality services efficiently.

This project was delivered by the Barwon Water Alliance.
