Latest Marton Water Reservoir Information

Marton Water Reservoir Storage Capacity

We need the Marton community to conserve water where possible to avoid our treated water storage running low. We expect the situation will improve over the next two to three weeks.

Update on Marton Water Following Heavy Rain this Week

December 11, 2020

The heavy rain experienced in Marton during the week has increased the catchment runoff into the Marton water supply dams.

The increased flow into the dams is causing the raw water quality to be more challenging for the treatment plant to process. Council staff have slowed down the plant to allow the treatment process time to deal with the changing raw water and to improve the final drinking water quality.

There is taste and odour in the water, but it is safe to drink.
