New waterproof guide to Cairn Curran Reservoir

Monday 7 August, 2017

Goulburn-Murray Water (GMW) has released a new-look Cairn Curran Recreation Guide to provide key information to visitors and locals.

The guide, printed on waterproof paper, features information on water levels; facilities; fishing, camping and boating details; events; and the lake’s code of conduct.

Acting Customer Service Manager Dam Operations West Dale Farnsworth said the guide will serve as a ‘one stop shop’ for all basic information about the water storage, which is a key regional asset.

“It still has the boating guide and map similar to the last one, but contains greater detail and reminders on the hazards to be aware of,” Mr Farnsworth said.

“Cairn Curran also has three lake zoning trigger levels which are important to understand. This means boating rules can change depending on the water level.”

The guide has been developed with input from the Cairn Curran Land and On Water Management Plan Implementation Group (which includes shire and government representatives, local business interests, local community and lake users).

“Make sure you grab a copy when you visit, or download one in advance,” he said.

Cairn Curran supplies irrigation, stock and domestic, and environmental water to entitlement holders from surrounding towns and flows downstream into Laanecoorie Reservoir.

The new Cairn Curran Recreation Guide is available online at Pick up a copy at one of the local caravan parks, or alternatively from the Maldon Visitor Information Centre.
