We use a number of water sources to ensure we can meet local demand even when inflows are low.
Riddells Creek’s water can be sourced from:
- Rosslynne Reservoir, near Gisborne, and treated at the Rosslynne Water Filtration Plant, and
- the Melbourne supply system.
For current information, visit:
Riddells Creek’s sewage is treated at the Riddells Creek Recycled Water Plant to the east of town.
Riddells Creek Recycled Water Plant produces Class C recycled water.
The recycled water is used to irrigate local farms, sportsfields, large gardens and recreation areas.
Western Water has a licence to discharge excess recycled water volumes to Jacksons Creek under strict conditions set by the Environment Protection Authority.
