South Gippsland Water is pleased that the South Gippsland Water Security Project (Lance Creek Water Connection) was successful in receiving funding through this year’s State Government budget process.
The project is a key component in South Gippsland Water’s long-term strategy to secure the region’s water supply for the next 50 years. Current catchment yields will reduce over time and will not meet the region’s future demand for water.
The South Gippsland Water Security Project will result in the Coalition Creek Water Supply System (Korumburra) and the Little Bass Water Supply System (Poowong, Loch and Nyora) being connected to South Gippsland Water’s largest supply system, Lance Creek.
The Lance Creek supply system has the capacity to tap into the Melbourne Water Supply System for use during water shortages or when the need arises.
This 3-year project is a priority in South Gippsland Water’s long-term strategy for a secure water supply for Korumburra, Poowong, Loch and Nyora. The infrastructure installed as part of the project will also allow for the future connection of Leongatha to the network.”
The project which will provide a dependable environment for community development, economic growth and future investment.
