Stage 4 restrictions to be lifted in Apollo Bay

 

Stage 4 water restrictions will be lifted in the coastal townships of Apollo Bay, Marengo and Skenes Creek from Sunday 12 May 2013. The Permanent Water Saving Plan will then apply.

Recent rains have replenished the storage basin at Marengo, which now holds 70% of capacity. Local storages had dipped below 50% in March, but have been recovering steadily since. With the tourist season and Easter influx of holidaymakers over, demand is also expected to drop.

New basin update

Work is progressing well on the new 250-million litre storage basin in Apollo Bay, to complement the existing 125-million litre Marengo storage.

Excavation works are underway, steel framework has been erected for the transfer pumping station and brickwork has begun.

The new storage is expected to be operational in mid-2014 and will meet forecast growth until 2055.
