As part of our ongoing commitment to provide drinking water to townships across our region, we are pleased to announce that Brim, Beulah, Sea Lake and Woomelang will receive a drinking water supply by the end of 2018.

As part of the works Brim, Beulah, Sea Lake and Woomelang’s water supply will be sourced from Lake Bellfield and treated in line with the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines at our Warracknabeal Water Treatment Plant. The drinking water will then be supplied to each town by a pipeline to be built from Warracknabeal to Sea Lake, via Brim, Beulah, Hopetoun, and Woomelang.

Presently, Sea Lake receives a water supply from the Murray River, and Brim, Beulah and Woomelang are supplied from Supply System 2 of the Wimmera Mallee Pipeline.

GWMWater's contractor, Mitchell Water Australia Pty Ltd, has commenced works and the section between Warracknabeal and Beulah is well advanced.

We have liaised with rural property owners along the pipeline route. We will keep our customers in Brim, Beulah, Sea Lake and Woomelang informed as works these progress.

If you would like more information on this project or any of our services, please contact us.
