Jarklin

The township of Jarklin is located approximately 60 kilometres north west of Bendigo.

 

Water Supply

The Goulburn System provides non potable water to the population of 12.

Raw water is sourced from Serpentine Weir on the nearby Serpentine Creek, part of the Loddon Catchment.

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

 

Water treatment

The water supplied in the Jarklin 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.
