Surveyors Report on WISALTS Conservation System created by D (Des) Moir.

Comments: 2nd Map. My reason for main creek to be used is to take water away from townsite. Number 1 priority water dam for town, also dam for sporting oval etc. Soil depth 2 to 6 inches in depth, grey sand to grey clay. This property could be made into a very productive property I feel with a number of dollars well spent. I do hope that the town has the governments support as this is a great opportunity for good water for the bowls and homes needs etc. Shire cost at 25% go ahead. There is a possibility for other dam sites if farmer needs them. Main Roads would have to upgrade their waterway where creek crosses over main road. Rail line bridge is wide for water flow. I must stress townsite is number 1.
