All across the Strathbogie Ranges most properties have a bore or spring-fed dam – people rely on groundwater for stock, domestic and irrigation purposes. But, is your bore holding? During the Millennium Drought, lots of spring-fed dams and many bores struggled, or dried up. And if things stay dry, some local bores may begin to struggle again as we head into a dry autumn.
The Strathbogie Ranges Conservation Management Network and Gecko CLaN Landcare are working with landholders to monitor changes in groundwater in the Seven Creeks catchment. In November 2018, automated monitoring equipment was installed in a Strathbogie bore and several more automated bore monitors are being planned. In addition, ten private bores are being regularly ‘dipped’ to see how groundwater varies across the Tableland.
Friday evening’s presentation will include several speakers.
