Recent wet weather has significantly reduced the available storage capacity at the Kyneton Water Reclamation Plant.

Coliban Water say the wet conditions are also impacting works as part of the Kyneton Solutions Project.

The $15-17 million investment will deliver improved treatment processes and more than double storage capacity.

55 millimetres of rain fell in the region over two days recently, resulting in inflows to the plant which increased lagoon volume from 85 to 98 per cent.
