ABOUT THE PROJECT

Bullarto Reservoir Spillway Upgrade

Bullarto Reservoir is an earth fill embankment dam, located approximately 5km north east of the town-ship of Bullarto. The reservoir was build in approx. 1950-1960 and has a volume of approx. 180 ML. The reservoir is the main water supply for Daylesford. With the ever increasing demands for water, Central Highlands Water has contracted Entracon to construct a new, higher spillway and upgrade the dam wall. This will increase the Water Storage Capacity of the reservoir to 219ML.
