    Tidal River water supply this summer 2023/24

    This summer of 2023/24, the water storage (in tanks) at Tidal River is reduced compared with previous years. It means that while Parks Victoria repair the water storage, the system overall has less capacity.
     
    To help the system cope this summer, Parks Victoria is asking all visitors to help save water and reduce their water use during their stay.
     
    You can help by:
    •            Filling up your caravan water tanks before arrival.
    •            Taking shorter showers – 4 minutes or Iess.
    •            Turning off taps when brushing teeth.
    •            Using less water to wash dishes – use a tub.
    •            Taking your laundry home for shorter stays.
    •            Using a caravan dump point outside of the Prom for caravan waste.
    •            Reporting leaks and running toilets to the Visitor Centre.
     
     
    Did you know?
     
    Tidal River Campground is ‘off-grid’. This means that all water and electricity come from inside the Prom. For water, the supply starts with water being drawn from the Tidal River catchment. It is then treated to a drinking water standard, stored in a series of tanks, and distributed around the campground for visitors to enjoy.
     
    Thanks for your cooperation.
