A new 250 million litre water storage is now complete and will meet forecast growth in Apollo Bay, Marengo and Skenes Creek.
The new storage complements the existing 125 megalitre Marengo basin, tripling local water storage capacity, and spelling the end of summer water restrictions in these coastal towns.
Construction was completed ahead of expected rainfall through winter and spring, 2014.
The Apollo Bay Water Treatment Plant is also being upgraded to boost capacity, with completion expected in November 2014.
This project is being delivered by the Barwon Water Alliance.
