|An unseasonally dry winter resulted in a dam|
level well below it's normal winter level.
But, peeking under the jetty in the top right
corner you can see there was still enough for
the ducks to splash about in :)
The above pic of the dam was taken in October. As you can see there is at least 3 - 4 feet of waterproofed gum pole showing above the water line.
|A dry and crumbling entrance gully...|
|Welcome water gushing down the gully into|
|The water deepened the gully, but wasn't|
ferocious enough to widen it.RMan is planning to strengthen the entrance
gully to prevent it from getting out of control.
The gully into the dam is dramatically deeper...
|That's better. What's the point of a dam if|
it isn't holding much water?
... and the water level in the dam has risen by at least 2 - 2.5 feet :)
So, not only did the rain fill the rain tanks, but it also rejuvenated the water in the dam too :)
|The predicted rainfall for next week|
The weather forecast that I follow shows that we can, hopefully, expect, a further 20mm of welcome water falling from the heavens over three days next week. I hope that they don't adjust that down as is their wont...
