The data on this page relate to surface water storages (reservoirs) only.

Additional water sources used to boost Geelong’s supplies in extreme dry weather include underground aquifers at Barwon Downs and Anglesea and the Victorian water grid via the Melbourne to Geelong pipeline. Water from these sources is fed into the existing network.
