Coliban Water's three major catchment storages near Kyneton are holding about ten per cent more water than a year ago.
Coliban's executive general manager climate and population adaptation Steve Healy said autumn rainfall has wet up the catchments and good inflows are being seen.
"Our combined storage volume for our three catchment storages at Malmsbury, Lauriston and Upper Coliban is 69 per cent," Mr Healy said.
This time last year, storage volume was 59 per cent.
"Last autumn, we had good rainfall in May but this year we've had rain over three months," Mr Healy said.
"We recorded 35 millimetres at Malsmbury Reservoir on March 5, our highest daily rainfall for three years.
"Our autumn rainfall was 257mm, compared to our long-term average of 149mm."
Coliban Water has nine separate water supply systems across its regions.
Strategy 2030 is Coliban's 10-year strategic plan focused on water security and climate adaptation.
"Strategy 2030 guides us to ensure there is enough water to sustain and grow economic activity and investment for our region," Mr Healy said.
"Using water efficiently is everyone's responsibility to help secure our water supplies and maintain greener and more liveable communities now and into the future."
The rural season water allocation will be announced on July 1, based on Coliban's assessment of available water for the next two seasons, according to Mr Healy.
Playground and barbecue facilities at Coliban's three catchment storages have reopened.
Up to 20 people can gather at a community facility to use barbecue facilities, ensuring physical distancing is practiced, unless they are from the same household.
Coliban's manager community operations Mick Dunne said the use of on-water access points, playground and barbecues had been suspended since the start of April due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"The gradual easing of restrictions in Victoria means all facilities at Upper Coliban, Lauriston and Malmsbury reservoirs are open for people to enjoy," Mr Dunne said.
Lauriston Reservoir's playground reopened last week, while on-water recreation and fishing has been permitted since May 13.
"Shoreline fishing, kayaks, canoes and small portable craft with electric motors are permitted at Upper Coliban, Lauriston and Malmsbury Reservoirs," Mr Dunne said.
"Fishing and recreation activities at our reservoirs directly connect to our focus on liveability.
"We opened a new on-water access point at Premier Mine Road at Upper Coliban Reservoir in December and thousands of fish were delivered to the reservoir before Christmas."
