Your water supply: Apollo Bay, Marengo and Skenes Creek

A new water storage is planned for Apollo Bay.

Apollo Bay's water supply has been upgraded to support the influx of tourists over summer.

Apollo Bay, Marengo and Skenes Creek are supplied with water from the Barham River in the southern Otways.

A pump station at the river transfers water to the nearby Apollo Bay basin. From here, it is pumped to the Marengo basin.

The water is transferred via a pipeline to the nearby treatment plant, where it is filtered and disinfected.

An upgrade to the towns’ water supply was completed in 2014 to support the summer tourist influx.
