Coliban Water has announced that allocations for the 2020/21 rural season will open at 100 per cent.
Executive general manager climate and population adaptation Steve Healy said this means 1366 rural customers will have access to their full licence volume when the season opens in late spring.
"Our three catchment storages on the Coliban River near Kyneton are in a strong position after above average rainfall," Mr Healy said.
Storage volumes at the three major catchment storages, Upper Coliban, Lauriston and Malsmbury, are at 72.5 per cent of their capacity, holding more than 50,000 megalitres of water.

Mr Healy said water resource decisions are made by considering all customers, while aiming to maintain two years of supply in store.
"Our Coliban Northern system towns, which include Bendigo, can access water from our storages, from our 18 per cent share of Lake Eppalock and from the Goulburn System via the Goldfields Superpipe," he said.
Coliban Water has nine separate water supply systems across its region, all reliant on rainfall.
"Our 504 kilometres of rural channels and pipelines are a vital supply network for local agriculture and our rural season allocations underpin on-farm investment decisions," Mr Healy said.
Rural water deliveries will commence near the end of October, depending on demand.
