Stage 2 water restrictions in Euroa and Violet Town

Tuesday, 23 April, 2019

A decision to implement Stage 2 water restrictions in Euroa and Violet Town has been made by Goulburn Valley Water following months of dry and warm conditions.

Restrictions will be in accordance with GVW’s Bylaw 512 and came into effect from Thursday 11th April and will remain in place until further notice.

Storages in the Euroa system, which supplies both Euroa and Violet Town, are sitting at about 22% and demand continues to be high due to warm autumn weather.

Improvement works underway this year on the original Abbinga storage dam are also affecting storage levels.

Strathbogie Shire CEO, Steve Crawcour said Council is working with Goulburn Valley Water to reduce its operational water usage and use alternate supplies of water, including raw water, where possible.

“We have had discussions and assistance from Goulburn Valley Water to look at where we can reduce Council’s water usage, as well as ensuring the shire’s essential assets are maintained where possible,” Mr Crawcour explained.
