All South Gippsland Water storages at 100 per cent full

Monday, August 9th, 2021

The first week of August saw all of our storage levels reach 100 per cent full for the first time in 2021. This comes after another week of stable rainfall.

South Gippsland Water’s Managing Director, Philippe du Plessis said that this places us in a good position to take on dryer periods throughout the summer months.

“Last week, from the 31 July to 6 August South Gippsland Water’s storages recorded 37mm at Lance Creek, which services Korumburra, Poowong, Loch, Nyora, Wonthaggi, Inverloch and Cape Paterson; 37mm at Ruby Creek, which services Leongatha; 64mm at Deep Creek, which services Foster and 53mm at Battery Creek, which services Fish Creek” he said.

“Even with our storage levels at 100 per cent, Victorian Permanent Water Saving rules still apply. Always remember to water your gardens between 6pm and 10am, sweep and not hose down pathways and driveways, and install trigger nozzles on all outside hoses.”
