Barwon Water is calling on the Anglesea borefield to supplement water supplies for customers in Anglesea, Aireys Inlet, Torquay, the Bellarine Peninsula and parts of southern Geelong.

The borefield, along with the Melbourne to Geelong Pipeline, is a critical backup water source that can supplement the existing supply system in response to dry conditions.

Accessing groundwater is part of a balanced approach to managing the region’s water resources and providing greater water security.

The Anglesea borefield will operate in conjunction with an extensive environmental monitoring program, which includes the community in the oversight through the Anglesea River Working Group.

The environmental monitoring program is in place to provide data and information about the long-term sustainability of groundwater resources in the area and protect the environmental values and health of groundwater-dependent ecosystems.

Barwon Water is committed to sharing information on the operation of the borefield and will do this through ongoing updates to the Anglesea River Working Group, local community and environmental groups, information sessions and online.
