Water restrictions will be eased from Stage 2 to Stage 1 in the greater Geelong region from Sunday 3 October 2010.
Key changes to restrictions include:
The decision to ease restrictions again follows excellent winter and early spring rain, and a dramatic increase in our water storages.
New water sources including the Anglesea Borefield, and strong community awareness of water conservation made the decision to ease restrictions a certainty.
Geelong's storages are currently at an 8-year high of 69.7%.
Other towns in our service region remain on permanent water saving measures. This includes Colac and surrounds, Lorne, Aireys Inlet, and Apollo Bay.
