Water Restrictions for Korumburra and Fish Creek

Monday, January 11th, 2016

South Gippsland Water is activating Stage 1 Water Restrictions in Fish Creek and Korumburra following continuing dry climate conditions and resultant increased water demand.

After a moderately dry winter, this year’s spring rainfall for the region is now confirmed as the lowest on record since the late 1930’s. This has lessened reservoir inflows even when rain has fallen. Reservoir levels are currently at 67% for the Battery Creek system and 65% for the Coalition Creek System (as at Friday 8th January).

As of Thursday January 14th 2016, Stage 1 Water Restrictions apply to South Gippsland Water customers of the Coalition Creek and Battery Creek Water Supply Systems, under uniform State Model Water Restriction By-laws.
