Coliban Water has reduced the amount of recycled water it is releasing into the Campaspe River from its Kyneton plant.
From Monday, October 19, the Kyneton Water Reclamation Plant was releasing four megalitres of tertiary treated class B recycled water and class B recycled water, which increased to five megalitres on Wednesday, October 22 in the face of further forecast rainfall.
But on Friday, releases were dropped back to four megalitres per day.
Coliban Water says the plant received 13 millilitres of rain the previous weekend and managed the inflow with no significant impact on lagoon levels.
The lagoon volume sits at 89 per cent of capacity.
The water authority has also stopped carting treated water to other plants, which it started doing on Monday, October 19 in a bid to free up space in the lagoon.
Coliban Water says the Kyneton plant is operating as normal and it remains compliant with Environment Protection Authority licence conditions.
Earlier this month, the company warned "certain weather conditions" could result in non-compliant water releases into the river, as rainfall had all but filled the storage lagoons.
The wet weather has pushed back planned work on a 200-megalitre lagoon, which would have doubled the plant's storage capacity.
