Latest Victorian outlook (as at 1 December 2017)

At a glance

Victoria is well prepared
to meet urban and rural water needs over summer and autumn 2017-18. Melbourne, Geelong, Bendigo, Ballarat and other major towns have enough water to meet urban and rural needs for the coming year.

The Victorian Government
is working in partnership with the water sector including water corporations and the community to help secure water supplies for current and future generations.

Melbourne
is not expected to face water restrictions over the coming year and the desalination plant is available to boost Melbourne’s water supplies if required.

Regional urban water corporations
are not expecting water restrictions under average conditions, except in the South Gippsland town of Korumburra where stage 1 restrictions may be needed. If Victoria experiences dry or worst on record conditions this summer, water restrictions may be necessary in some towns in regional Victoria.

Storage levels
are generally slightly lower than at the same time last year but higher than the same time two years ago.
