Stage 2 water restrictions 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 on Sunday 30 October 2011.

Restrictions will ensure the limited supply capacity of the Marengo basin copes with the summer tourist influx.

Barwon Water has secured the site for the new Apollo Bay water storage, construction will begin in 2012 and will be completed in 2014. The new storage will meet furture demand for residents and tourists, and see an end to regular summer restrictions.

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

Under Stage 2 restrictions, watering of lawns is banned and garden watering is only permitted during limited hours on alternate days. Window cleaning, vehicle washing and watering sporting grounds are also restricted.

The restrictions will apply until Saturday 28 April 2012.
