The 2024/25 rural season will open with a 100% allocation in late October or early November (depending on demand).

Rostered channel periods will be sent out before the season starts in our annual Rural Water Guide, and will be updated on our website. Channels that aren't on the roster (unrostered channels) run on demand of water orders made throughout the season.

To place an order and for more information, see Order rural water.


Pipeline systems

Our rural pipeline systems offer a year-round supply of water. However, the South Lockwood system only runs at high pressure during the rural season.

Pipelines can be unexpectedly shut-off for unplanned repair.

Make sure you:

  • run your water into a tank or dam for storage
  • have at least three-days of water stored at any time

Victoria has a tough stance on compliance with penalties for illegal take and use of water. Find out more here.
