Works commenced on 9 July 2018, and when completed will allow the lake to be filled with recreational water sourced from the Wimmera Mallee Pipeline.

Green Lake (near Sea Lake) will be closed to the public while works are carried out.

GWMWater is managing the project on behalf of the Green Lake Committee of Management.

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.

The works on the Mallee Towns Drinking Water Supply Project is well underway and is proceeding according to plan with major works expected to be completed in December 2018. Once the water quality has been declared, residents will receive a drinking quality water supply in early 2019.

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 130 km pipeline to be built from Warracknabeal to Sea Lake, via Brim, Beulah, Hopetoun, and Woomelang. Pumping Stations and storage tanks will be installed at Warracknabeal, Hopetoun and Sea Lake.

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.

If you would like more information on this project or any of our services, please contact us.
