Rubbish including a television, empty beer cans, and garden waste have been found dumped at Lauriston Reservoir near Kyneton.
A Coliban Water reservoir controller found the rubbish during a routine inspection of the grounds on January 11.
It is the latest in a number of incidents involving rubbish being dumped at Lauriston Reservoir.
“Our staff member came across the assorted waste, which included a television, chest of drawers, cupboard, files, garden waste, plastic bags, empty beer cans, women’s shoes and other items,” Coliban Water community operations manager Mick Dunne said.
“Even though our staff regularly patrol the area, sadly this is something that happens all too often.

“It really is disappointing that someone has chosen to discard their rubbish in this way. They’ve shown disregard for the environment, their community and other users of this track as well.”
Coliban Water has cameras installed in some locations it monitors but they are urging people to report illegal dumping by contacting the Environmental Protection Authority on 1300 372 842.
