Yesterday, Westernport Water released its Annual Water Outlook which forecasts water supply security for the year ahead.
Managing Director Peter Quigley explained that the Outlook considers the current storage level and available climate data to make projections on water supply and demand from 1 December 2019 to 30 November 2020.
“The Outlook predicts that our water supply will be sufficient to meet demand, with no need for restrictions in the foreseeable future,” said Mr Quigley.
“While the area is set for a warmer than average summer, our water supply is secure for the next 12 months with water levels currently above 90%.”
“Looking ahead, we are planning on testing our connection to the Melbourne Water Supply System. The Melbourne Water Supply System is a valuable source of water that Westernport Water can access when required.”
“Permanent water saving rules remain in place across the state and we encourage all of our customers, and visitors to the area, to use water wisely.”
“Using water wisely is everyone’s responsibility, I encourage each person to do their bit to help secure supplies for tougher times,” said Mr Quigley.
