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

Other water sources are available to boost Geelong's supplies in extreme dry weather including underground aquifers at Barwon Downs and Anglesea and the Melbourne water grid via the Melbourne to Geelong pipeline. Recycled water is also a valuable alternative supply with increased use in the residential sector.
