Avoca has 614 water connections and delivers approximately 116 million litres of water to those connections per year.

The Avoca water supply systems consists of Sugarloaf Reservoir, Bung Bong Bore groundwater supply and Lead Dam.  The Avoca system has predominantly relied on water from Sugarloaf Reservoir.  However since rainfall in the region has been less reliable this has resulted in a greater reliance on Bung Bong Bore.  Whilst the groundwater supply is reliable, it is characterised by relatively high natural salinity and hardness levels. 

Central Highlands Water remains committed to blending surface water and groundwater when surface water supplies are available.
