Stage 2 water restrictions lifted in Colac

Stage 2 water restrictions will be removed in Colac and district effective 1 am, this Saturday 22 June 2013.

The Permanent Water Saving Plan will then apply across Barwon Water's entire serviced region, including Colac and surrounding towns.

Under the Permanent Water Saving Plan:

  • hoses must not leak and be fitted with a trigger nozzle, and
  • watering systems can be used 6 am - 10 am daily. Hand-held hoses can be used any time.

After a dry start to the year, Colac's storages had dropped to a low of 31% when Stage 2 restrictions were introduced in May.

The decision to downgrade restrictions follows a significant improvement in the city’s storage levels, which have increased to almost 69% after more than 110 mm of rainfall was recorded in the catchment last week.
