Work beginning on Apollo Bay storage

We are upgrading the water supply to Apollo Bay, Marengo and Skenes Creek.

A new 250 million litre water storage will meet forecast growth and spell the end of summer water restrictions in these towns.

In addition to the new basin, the project includes replacing the existing Barham River pumping station, building a new transfer pumping station, and laying the connecting pipelines.

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


Drop in to our new project office, 93 Great Ocean Road, Apollo Bay. 


Construction update

Site set-up has begun and environmental controls, including silt fences and groundwater and dust management, are being established.

Site sheds and amenities are being installed on Barham River Road.

We expect to have earthworks and the basin lining completed before winter 2013.


Changed traffic conditions ahead

We are asking residents to please be mindful of changed traffic conditions around Barham River Road.

There will be a number of very large trucks delivering materials and equipment to the site during the next month.
