Location

Tullaroop Reservoir dams the Tullaroop Creek, a tributary of the Loddon River. The storage embankment is situated about 7 km south-east of Carisbrook.

History Tullaroop Reservoir

Tullaroop Reservoir was built between 1958 and 1959. The construction involved substantial excavation, including the removal of 300,000 cubic yards of material from the bed of Tullaroop Creek.

Operations

Tullaroop Reservoir stores water for supplies to irrigated properties along Tullaroop Creek and the Loddon River.

Supplementation of the western sector of the Goulburn water supply system using Loddon River resources such as that held in Tullaroop Reservoir occurs when water resources are abundant.

The reservoir also provides water for Maryborough.
