2.3.4 Reservoirs Example 6

Location of Example: 150°32'28" East, 34°13'44" South,
Distinctive Characteristics:
  • This example is an example of what not to capture as a Reservoir.
  • There is no evidence of man made barriers, which indicates that these features are natural waterbodies. In the current climate it is possible these waterbodies are part of a river subject to drought. With lower water levels the rivers become segmented and only hold water in the deeper depressions.
Regional Considerations:
