Blackwater Monitoring - Murray River

Reason: Blackwater in the Murray River

We are continuing to monitor water quality in the Wimmera Mallee and Northern Mallee Pipeline systems following heavy rainfall and excess water across Victoria.

Customers with an untreated water supply sourced from the Murray River may notice a change in colour and odour of your supply.

Continued wet weather has led to excess water along the Murray River reaching floodplains where floodwater can leach out organic matter from dead leaves, bark and grasses. This can give water a brown to black coloured appearance known as ‘blackwater’. 

Customers are reminded that your untreated water supply is not safe for drinking. Water can be used for household activities, such as watering gardens, flushing toilets, showering/bathing, irrigation and laundry.

GWMWater will provide further information to customers if the situation changes or if any actions need to be taken.

Lake Fyans

Last year

Lake Fyans is a small off-stream reservoir with a small natural catchment. Despite its small size, Lake Fyans supplies water to Ararat, Stawell and Great Western, as well as to some Supply-by-Agreement customers.

The lake is one of the most important recreational lakes in the region. It hosts a number of activities including sailing, jet skiing, hunting and caravanning.

A 9.6 km walking track around the perimeter of Lake Fyans is a feature with splinter tracks available to explore the diverse plant life, nature trails and bird trails.

Lake Fyans Embankment Upgrade works

Lake Fyans is set to receive an upgrade over the summer months with works on the embankment and marina being undertaken. Find out more about the project
