South Gippsland Water’s Managing Director, Philippe du Plessis said, “The past week has seen some welcome spring rainfall across all catchments and reservoir levels remain high.”

The Corporation has managed the successful changeover of Korumburra to the Lance Creek Water Supply System last week, which occurred without any issues. “Customers may have noticed a difference, with a change in taste and smell of their water. Water being transferred via the pipeline is currently majority Melbourne Supply System water”.
