Effective land management around Malmsbury, Lauriston and Upper Coliban reservoirs plays a key role in providing safe drinking water to many central Victorian communities.Coliban Water is hosting an information session for landowners adjoining its three major catchment storages near Kyneton, and local community members.
Manager of raw water supply, Steve Healy, said Coliban’s goal was to improve water quality in the catchment storages through improved land management and building on community relationships.
“The session is a great way to meet with the local community and discuss with landowners incentives and information available to help them,” Mr Healy said.
“Effective land management around Malmsbury, Lauriston and Upper Coliban reservoirs plays a key role in providing safe drinking water to many central Victorian communities.
“Our engagement activities around theDrinking Water Storages and Land Management Planlast year highlighted the need to involve and build on relationships with adjoining landowners, the local community and recreational users to achieve these outcomes.
“The plan outlines our five-year vision with regards to improved outcomes for land management and recreation. It includes actions to manage erosion, livestock access and vegetation issues such as weeds, fire risks and tree safety.”
The information session will be at Malmsbury Town Hall on Thursday, February 12, from 7pm to 8.30pm. A light supper will be provided.
