We wish to advise that the Interruption to Service on the Northern Mallee Pipeline between Ouyen and Underbool been postponed until later this month due to a change in conditions.

GWMWater has developed an online map for property owners in the South West Loddon pipeline area.
Property owners can now view their land online and see where the South West Loddon pipeline is proposed to align to their properties.
As part of our ongoing commitment to provide drinking water to townships across our region, we are pleased to announce that Brim, Beulah, Sea Lake and Woomelang will receive a drinking water supply by the end of 2018.
As part of the works Brim, Beulah, Sea Lake and Woomelang’s water supply will be sourced from Lake Bellfield and treated in line with the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines at our Warracknabeal Water Treatment Plant. The drinking water will then be supplied to each town by a pipeline to be built from Warracknabeal to Sea Lake, via Brim, Beulah, Hopetoun, and Woomelang.
Presently, Sea Lake receives a water supply from the Murray River, and Brim, Beulah and Woomelang are supplied from Supply System 2 of the Wimmera Mallee Pipeline.
GWMWater's contractor, Mitchell Water Australia Pty Ltd, has commenced works and the section between Warracknabeal and Beulah is well advanced.
We have liaised with rural property owners along the pipeline route. We will keep our customers in Brim, Beulah, Sea Lake and Woomelang informed as works these progress.
If you would like more information on this project or any of our services, please contact us.
GWMWater came on board and with a team of committed locals to install two well designed, accessible drinking water fountains.

Our 2018-2023 water price submission sets out our proposed prices, service standards and customer outcomes for the next five-year regulatory period.
Our price proposal has now been submitted to Victoria’s independent economic regulator, the Essential Services Commission for consideration.
The submission reflects our focus on keeping customers’ bills down, while delivering the infrastructure and services required to provide sustainable water and waste water services for regional growth, a healthy environment and vibrant communities.
Customers will be consulted throughout the commission’s review process, with the final determination expected to be released in mid-2018.
We have undertaken broader and more in-depth consultation with our customers and communities than in previous processes culminating in an independent review by a Deliberative Panel made up of 17 independent customers from within our region. Customers have been encouraged to input into the ESC processes either through various customer surveys, several focus groups and through our regular Customer and Stakeholder Workshops (held every six months) over the past 12 to 18 months and all input and feedback has been considered.
Our submission is available on the ESC website at http://www.esc.vic.gov.au/project/water/36640-2018-water-price-review/
If you would like to obtain a printed copy of our submission please contact the ESC directly. Their contact details are found at http://www.esc.vic.gov.au/contact-us/
