Rain, but Storages Still Dip

Monday, March 31st, 2014

Rainfall recorded at South Gippsland Water’s storages from the 22 March to 28 March 2014 was 9mm at Lance Creek, 16mm at Ruby Creek, 12mm at Coalition Creek, 2mm at Deep Creek, 12mm at Little Bass and 4mm at Battery Creek.

Ravi Raveendran, Manager of Operations, South Gippsland Water said today, “South Gippsland Water continues to supplement water supplies from the Tarwin River for Korumburra. Some rainfall was recorded at all catchments; however this was not enough to hold storage levels from declining. Further showers are forecast over the coming week”.
