Storages Decline

Monday, November 09, 2015

Rainfall recorded at South Gippsland Water’s storages from the 31st October to the 6th November 2015 was Lance Creek 24mm, Ruby Creek 22mm, Coalition Creek 17mm, Deep Creek 7mm, Little Bass 36mm and Battery Creek 17mm.
Despite rainfall being recorded in all catchments over the last week, dry catchment areas have led to little run-off being received in reservoirs. Storage levels continue to decline. Communities are encouraged to activate water saving behaviours ahead of summer. Things such as ensuring you water gardens during the cool of the day and fit trigger nozzles to all garden hoses can help reduce pressure on water supplies.
