Stage 2 water restrictions to apply in Apollo Bay, Skenes Creek and Marengo

Stage 2 water restrictions will be reintroduced in the coastal townships of Apollo Bay, Skenes Creek and Marengo this weekend ahead of summer.

Restrictions will apply from Sunday 4 November 2012 to Saturday 27 April 2013.

Although local water storages are currently above 95%, restrictions will ensure the limited capacity of the Marengo basin copes with the summer tourist influx.

Under Stage 2 restrictions, lawn watering is prohibited. Watering systems are permitted between 6—8 am and 6—8 pm on alternate days.

Work on a new 250 million litre water storage is due to start this month. The upgraded system is expected to be operational in 2014, and will spell the end of summer restrictions.

We would like to thank all our customers in Apollo Bay, Skenes Creek and Marengo for their continued cooperation.
