Mysia

Mysia is a locality in north central Victoria, Australia in the Loddon Shire local government area. It is around 90 kilometres north west of Bendigo.

Mysia and the surrounding area has a population of about 100.

The War Memorial School was opened on 9 November 1921 by the Earl of Stradbroke, Governor of Victoria.

The school was funded by public subscription which raised 500 pounds. The building was restored in 1999, and is currently used as a community hall.

 

Water supply

Mysia's water supply system provides non potable water to the population with 14 connections including the old school building. It is part of the Goulburn System.

Raw water is sourced from the Waranga Western Channel, located to the south of the township. The water is passed through a gravity fed channel, approximately 1.3 kilometres long to an earthen storage basin. The basin holds up to 8.4 megalitres.

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

 

Water treatment

The water supplied in the Mysia 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.
