bellview-reservoir-WEBWITH no run-off into the reservoir system providing home and business water supplies to the township of Korumburra, South Gippsland Water is set to announce the start to water restrictions next week.

While other parts of Victoria enjoyed totals up to 80mm in the past week, Korumburra and most parts of South Gippsland went without.

As a precaution, South Gippsland Water will now introduce water restrictions in an effort to protect the town’s meagre supplies and also the security of supply to the local milk factory, Burra Foods.

The water authority will also look at ways to augment the supply by pumping from the surface water resources in the area, including the Tarwin River.
