Lake Weeroona will receive a top up of water after high temperatures and minimal rainfall have resulted in low water levels.
City of Greater Bendigo director of presentation and assets Debbie Wood said the lake will receive daily top ups of rural water. In total 18 megalitres will be added to Lake Weeroona before Australia Day.
"This is an issue we encounter each summer," she said. "The city is currently topping up the lake every day and this will continue up until Australia Day.
"We have been able to work closely with Coliban Water to ensure the lake has adequate levels of water throughout the drier months through a new agreement that allows us to use the cheaper rural and reticulated recycled water to help maintain water levels."
Ms Wood said topping up the lake's water levels meant it can continue to be used and enjoyed by the community.
"To date, current water levels have not impacted on people's ability to use the lake for water sports and we are working to ensure this does not become an issue in future."
