I would love to get an indication on how many clubs in Melbourne have water tanks. I know of a couple. Middle Park. Auburn, Werribee RSL, Sunshine RSL, Princess Park. Im sure there are many more. Your help would be appreciated.

Thanks, great response so far. Keep them coming. I heard Melbourne BC are also putting them in.

Burwood I believe have two tanks that can hold up to 225,000 litres as well as an underground pit as an extra storage that contains two pumps to pump the water back up into these tanks.
After having both greens ripped up and redone watering should not be a problem (providing it rains). We had to sacrifice one rink to fit the big bastard of a tank in! :shock:

Blackburn Bowls Club installing underground storage with Tiff greens. plus water catchment and creek water derversion for extra water when needed.

Creek diversion. :shock: :shock: :shock: Don't let the water authorities hear about that. Maybe posting it on a public forum isn't a good idea. :???: :???: :???:

You mention diversion, if you look beyond the faces in this pic you will see in the background a small lake

Ararat recently purchased I think 3 or 4 tanks and they are now located directly behind that green.

If water diversion is allowed, why did they not simply get a pipe put under the rail line and into the lake which is fed from an underground spring and never goes dry.

I have seen others drawing water from that lake and as that club only has 2 synthetics and the last time I can remember anyone watering those greens was an awful long time ago, it makes you wonder doesnt it?

Geelong West now has 4 tanks holding approx 25,000 L each & a small feeder tank that collects all the rainwater off the clubrooms & pumps to the larger tanks.

i know you are only interested in melbourne but i'll tell you anyway
we have 43,000 gal in 5 tanks (3 x 11k, 2 x 5k) which are all full at the moment with enough water to see us through to october in normal weather conditions
these tanks are fed off the buildings and also from the overflow off the football grandstand roof next door
