Rainfall recorded at South Gippsland Water’s storages during the week of 16 January to 22 January was Lance Creek 3mm, Ruby Creek 25mm, Deep Creek 19mm and Battery Creek 26mm.
So far for January, monthly rainfalls have been Lance Creek 68mm, Ruby Creek 66mm, Deep Creek 96mm and Battery Creek 89mm.
South Gippsland Water’s Managing Director, Philippe du Plessis said while the region’s reservoirs and creeks had received some January rain, it was important everyone continued to follow Victoria’s Permanent Water Savings Rules, to keep our water storages healthy over the entire summer.
“Lance Creek Reservoir, which services Korumburra, Poowong, Loch, Nyora, Wonthaggi, Inverloch and Cape Paterson, is at 86 per cent and Ruby Creek, which services Leongatha is at 78 per cent. Deep Creek which services Foster and Battery Creek which services Foster are both at 96 per cent,” he said.
“While our water storages are reasonable, we do have an influx of visitors and holiday homeowners this time of year, which means an increased demand for water.”
“We all need to remember to water our gardens between 6pm and 10am, sweep and not hose down pathways and driveways, and install trigger nozzles on all outside hoses.”
