The saying goes that all good things are worth waiting for. We decided water storage was a priority at the end of the drought. By the time we found someone able to dig the dam, the rains came and came and came. Then we had to wait for things to dry......so two and a half years later we have our Big Dam of approximately 10,000 cubic metres, which is spring fed and uphill from some alluvial flats so we will be able to do gravity feed irrigation.
Our thanks to Bill Hoffman and Peter, our bulldozer and excavator drivers for an excellent job.
With the dam being spring fed it has taken one month to be 1/4 full with no rain to speak of and as you can see, some couldn't wait to test the water !
