Temporary water supply change in Bacchus Marsh, Darley and Maddingley

10 April 2020

This weekend Western Water will make a temporary water supply change in Bacchus Marsh, Darley and Maddingley.

The water supply change is necessary to prepare for upcoming works at the Merrimu Water Filtration Plant. The water supply change is expected to last up to one week.

Right now, water for these towns comes from nearby Merrimu Reservoir. During the works it will come from the Melbourne supply system.

When the change occurs, customers may notice a change to the taste of their water. They may also notice a change next week when Western Water expects to supply water from Merrimu Reservoir again.
