Moondarra Reservoir is our largest catchment and storage reservoir. We own and manage significant tracts of native bushland, farmland and plantation timber surrounding the reservoir.
We have begun the process of securing our biodiversity assets in this area by formally securing over 100 hectares of native forest under a Landowner Agreement. Vegetation within the Agreement area includes Lowland Forest, Shrubby Foothill Forest and Damp Forest types. The forest environs protected at the site are regarded as suitable habitat for a number of threatened fauna found in the area including the Greater Glider, White-bellied Sea-eagle, Powerful Owl and Lace Monitor. The location of the site upstream of our Moondarra Reservoir also adds further security to the quality of this major potable water supply by ensuring natural ecological processes are maintained in the catchment area.
Work over the next 10 years to conserve and improve the site as part of the Landowner Agreement includes:
