Water Supply

Supply potable water to

over 65,000 properties

Gippsland Water has 15 water treatment plants in the region, which supply water to more than 69,000 properties through more than 2,000 kilometres of water mains.

The way water is treated depends on where it is sourced. We take water from aquifers (ground water), rivers, creeks and reservoirs. Our largest storage is Moondarra Reservoir, south of Erica.

We also take water from storages managed by Southern Rural Water (Blue Rock Dam and Lake Glenmaggie) and Melbourne Water (Tarago Reservoir) to supply our customers living near these sites.

Our water is independently tested at the treatment plant, in our water mains, and at customers’ taps to ensure the water meets the requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act 2003 and does not deteriorate after it leaves the treatment plant. The water is tested for microbiological, chemical and physical parameters.
