We use a number of water sources to ensure we can meet demand in Lancefield, even when inflows are low.
Lancefield’s water can be sourced from:
- local surface water in Garden Hut Reservoir and Lancefield Basin and local bore water (groundwater), treated at the Lancefield Water Filtration Plant. Local water supplies are not fluoridated.
- Romsey water supplies, treated at the Romsey Water Filtration Plant (not fluoridated)
- Rosslynne Reservoir, treated at the Rosslynne Water Filtration Plant, near Gisborne (fluoridated), and
- the Melbourne supply system (fluoridated).

Lancefield’s sewage is treated at the Romsey Recycled Water Plant.

The recycled water is used to irrigate local farms, sportsfields and recreation areas.
