Rainfall recorded at South Gippsland Water’s storages from 30th June – 6th July 2018 was Lance Creek 41mm, Ruby Creek 8mm, Coalition Creek 15mm, Deep Creek 6mm, Little Bass 11mm and Battery Creek 13mm.
South Gippsland Water’s Managing Director, Philippe du Plessis said “Following rainfall and good inflow over the past week, South Gippsland Water will lift water restrictions for Korumburra and the Coalition Creek Water Supply System, effective immediately”.
Mr du Plessis went onto say that, “Whilst storage levels for Korumburra are still well below capacity, with progress on the new Lance Creek Water Connection, the Corporation does not anticipate the need for a full summer’s supply from current storages. The new water supply is expected to be brought online before the height of next summer and will provide a secure water supply for Korumburra. Storages at Ruby Creek (Leongatha) will be monitored as these storages continue to recover, albeit slowly and currently sit at 58% capacity”.
Customers are reminded to observe the Permanent Water Saving Rules in place across all systems:
- Sweep, don’t hose
- Water during the cool
- Fit trigger nozzles to all outdoor garden hoses
