Wychitella

The township of Wychitella is located around 80 kilometres north west of Bendigo in the Loddon Shire.

Water supply

The water supply system supplies non potable water only and services around 15 connections.

Wychitella is part of the Wimmera System. Raw water is sourced from the Wimmera Mallee Pipeline. the raw water is stored in a 100 kilolitre steel tank which replaces the open earthen basin.

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

 

Water treatment

The water supplied in the Wychitella 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.
