Dingee

Dingee is a town in northern Victoria. It is in the Loddon Shire about 50 kilometres north of Bendigo. Dingee and the surrounding area has a population of 320 people. The Dingee Post Office opened on 12 December 1883, on the arrival of the railway.

 

Water supply

Dingee is part of our Goulburn System and we provide non potable water to around 65 connections.

Raw water is sourced from the Goulburn Catchment through the Goulburn Murray Water's Pyramid No1 channel. Water is gravity fed into the Dingee Basin which holds up to 2 megalitres. This basin is filled every six weeks (approx.) during the irrigation season.

Untreated water is pumped directly from the reservoir to the Dingee reticulation system.

For further water resource information on the Goulburn System see our monthly Water Summaries.


Water treatment

The water supplied in the Dingee reticulation system is non potable (un-treated raw water) with no treatment processes in place before water is supplied to customers.

Seven towns in our region are supplied with non potable (un-treated) water.

These townships are Borung, Dingee, Jarklin, Macorna, Mitiamo, Mysia and Wychitella.

Receiving a non potable supply means that the water is not suitable for human consumption (ie drinking, food preparation, brushing teeth or ice making purposes).

 

In the event of poor raw water quality, the water should also not be used for personal hygiene purposes - such as bathing or showering.

For further information read our non potable water supply brochure.

Wastewater

There is no sewerage system for the township of Dingee.

Townships without sewerage systems generally have septic tanks or other onsite wastewater systems to treat and dispose of, or recycle domestic wastewater at unsewered sites.

There is an Environment Protection Authority (EPA) Victoria Code of Practice for Onsite Wastewater Management and the local councils are responsible for the developing and managing domestic wastewater programs and plans. Further information on onsite wastewater is available on the EPA website.

 

Water restrictions

Permanent Water Saving Rules (PWSR) apply.

PWSR are a set of five common sense water rules that are in place at all times when water restrictions are not in force.

Currently our region is divided into two separate pricing districts: Central and Northern. Fixed charges remain the same across both pricing districts but customers in each district pay a different rate per kilolitre of water used.

 

Dingee is in our Central District which covers our Bendigo, Castlemaine and Kyneton areas, Pyramid Hill, Lockington and towns near the Loddon River.
