Total rainfall for the month of August 2018 was Lance Creek 122mm, Ruby Creek 113mm, Coalition Creek 100mm, Deep Creek 87mm, Little Bass 87mm and Battery Creek 155mm.
South Gippsland Water’s Managing Director, Philippe du Plessis said “August rainfall saw all systems fully recovered, or well on their way to full recovery this winter, with only Ruby Creek not yet at full capacity at 95%. As we enter spring, storages are at satisfactory levels, however the Corporation is mindful of forecasts for drier than average summer conditions. As such, it is good to know that the Lance Creek Water Connection is nearing completion and Korumburra, Poowong, Loch and Nyora will have greater levels of water security into the future”.
