Water is now flowing into the Goldfields Reservoir thanks to a partnership between Council and Central Highlands Water.

The water is being pumped from the Central Highlands Water available groundwater resources and is being released to a channel that flows into the Goldfields Reservoir.

70 mega litres of water will be transferred as part of the partnership.

Central Goldfields Shire Chief Administrator Noel Harvey said it was wonderful to see the Goldfields Reservoir starting to fill again.

“We know many residents were concerned about the water levels at our Goldfields Reservoir so it’s great to see this wonderful community recreation asset replenished again for both residents and visitors to enjoy.”

Central Highlands Water and Council will continue to investigate sustainable inflows in a sustainable manner, said Paul O’Donohue, Managing Director, Central Highlands Water.

“We will continue to work closely with Central Goldfields Shire Council in a sustainable way to provide long term recreational and amenity benefits to the users of the Goldfields Reservoir, which is a community asset.”
