Storages


Reservoirs

Water supply reservoirs and service basins are located throughout Wannon Water's service area. The basins allow sediments to settle out and contact with wind and sunlight cause pathogens to die off. Storages in the reservoirs act to meet the summer water needs under normal conditions, filling over the winter and being drawn upon during summer.

Service basins

Wannon Water's service basins are smaller than the supply basins and are located upstream of our water treatment plants. Their purpose is to provide balancing storage to meet peak daily demands and to store emergency supplies of water for the individual townships.

Clear water basins

These storages, as their name implies, are used to store water that has been filtered.
