Blackmans Swamp Creek Stormwater Harvesting Scheme Stage 2

Orange City Council is examining expanding Blackmans Swamp Creek storm Water harvesting from the current stage one to developing a stage two system

The proposed project would take the amount of water harvested from the creek from 8 per cent of flows to 18 per cent of flows.

It needs to be remembered taking water from the creek does impact on landholders and communities downstream as well as the environment.

Council is very mindful of this potential impact and aims to develop a system which is sustainable for all parts of the community and the environment.
