New pipeline to boost water supply

The recently completed Barwon to Colac water pipeline in Victoria was switched on for the first time on Monday 30 April 2018 to boost water supplies to Colac.

The decision to use the new pipeline follows prolonged dry conditions and Colac’s water storages dipping below half-full.

By switching on the back-up supply, Barwon Water can maintain storages until rain fills Colac’s main sources, the West Gellibrand and Olangolah reservoirs.

The decision also means that water restrictions are now highly unlikely to be required for Colac and surrounding towns.

The $19 million infrastructure project incorporates an 11km pipeline, 50 million-litre water basin and a pumping station.

The project – which was fast-tracked by two years – provided stimulus for the local economy, with several contracts awarded to regionally-based businesses.

The upgrade ensures water security by providing access to the West Barwon Reservoir via Wurdee Boluc channel.
