When we first bought the property back in 2003(Wow that time has flown) the only water we had was supplied by a couple of metal tanks that collected the water off the house and various out buildings. This just wasn"t enough to supply the needs of the house, garden and livestock, so we had to do something fairly quickly.
There had been an existing dam which at some time in the past had held water, it now leaked badly and had become overgrown with pine trees and grass.
We made the decision to then use it as a rubbish tip as we demolished and cleaned up the property we pushed and pulled all the "stuff" into that big hole.
There has been a lot of work and expense, but everything we do now is one less thing to do further down the track.
Water will always be a priority, and without it we or anything else will cease to exist, so we value it greatly.
So until we meet again,
Cheers to everyone,
