The Draught of 1991 had caused serious issues for water storage facilities in Phillip Island, after the discovery of a poisonous algae bloom. Concerns were raised over water supplies on the island being exhausted by the coming Friday.
The reservoir was treated with copper sulphate and the water expected to be free of the algae by the weekend.
