Waterway

Great day at the top

Thursday 2 November, 2006
Sixty people from various parts of the Goulburn Broken catchment, and Melbourne, attended the Mount Buller Field Day during National Water Week.

Sixty people from various parts of the Goulburn Broken catchment, and Melbourne, attended the Mount Buller Field Day during National Water Week.

The weather was warm and sunny enabling the full program of presentations to proceed, including a conducted tour of the alpine meadow with Louise Perrin, Environmental Manager Mt Buller & Mt Stirling Alpine Resort Management Board.

A tour of the waste water treatment plant and the snowmaking facility enabled guests to understand the logistics and challenges of managing a resort in a remote location, while observing environmental constraints.

Guests were delighted with the level of information they received on native alpine vegetation and were highly impressed with the infrastructure tours conducted by Stephen Holland, Treatment Plant Supervisor and Will Walker, Health, Safety, Environment, and Quality Officer, Mt Buller Ski Lifts.

The event was organised to celebrate National Water Week by the Goulburn Broken Water Week Committee which includes representatives from Goulburn Valley Water and the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (CMA).

The CMA's Poppe Davis coordinated the event and said that its success virtually guarantees a repeat performance in Water Week next year.
