Storage and Rainfall Update 9-18 September

Monday, September 18, 2017

Rainfall was recorded at South Gippsland Water’s storages from 9th – 18th September 2017. Lance Creek 56mm, Ruby Creek 47mm, Coalition Creek 60mm, Deep Creek 58mm, Little Bass 64mm and Battery Creek 66mm.

Philippe du Plessis, Managing Director for South Gippsland Water said, “Rainfall over recent weeks has been most welcome, especially for the Ruby Creek catchment which has now risen from 68% capacity at the end of August to 95% capacity to date. That is some 500 million litres added to the storages over the past 3 weeks.”

As a result of the recent inflows, all systems have now recovered and the possibility of springtime water restrictions have been removed.
