Macedon Ranges water supply changes

4 April 2019

Due to a recent dry period, the water levels of the Rosslynne Reservoir have fallen to below 20% of capacity.

Right now, drinking water for these towns comes from both local sources and the Melbourne supply system. With local sources now decreasing:

  • Romsey, Lancefield and Woodend will be supplied with a blend of water from local sources and the Melbourne supply system

  • 100% of water in Gisborne, New Gisborne, Gisborne South, Macedon, Mt Macedon and Riddells Creek will come from the Melbourne supply system.

Customers in these towns may notice a slight change to the taste of their drinking water as these changes are made.

It will continue to meet Australian Drinking Water Guidelines - all drinking water supplied by Western Water is safe and healthy to drink.
