Allen Reservoir (Lorne) 196 131 196 +20 66.8

The water level in Allen Reservoir is being lowered to undertake important dam safety upgrades.

Customers can expect the reservoir level to drop below 60% while upgrades are underway. The works are scheduled for completion in May 2018.

This work has been timed to minimise impact to Lorne’s water security (i.e. after the summer tourist influx and before the winter/spring water harvesting period).
