Rainfall recorded at South Gippsland Water’s storages during the week of 17 July to 23 July was Lance Creek 28mm, Ruby Creek 31mm, Deep Creek 17mm and Battery Creek 29mm.
South Gippsland Water’s Managing Director, Philippe du Plessis said that our reservoirs and creeks have all reached full or near full levels.
“Lance Creek Reservoir, which services Korumburra, Poowong, Loch, Nyora, Wonthaggi, Inverloch and Cape Paterson, is at 100 per cent and Ruby Creek, which services Leongatha is at 93 per cent. Deep Creek which services Foster is at 100 per cent and Battery Creek, which services Fish Creek is at 100 per cent,” he said.
“The rainfall we have experienced over the winter months have placed our reservoirs and creeks at levels that we would expect to see this time of year. Even so, we need to remember that 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.”
