  • Year: 2013
  • Publisher: Western Australian Department of Water
  • ISBN: 978-1-921907-43-2
  • Country: Australia
  • State/Region: Western Australia

Plan was developed to help protect the quality of water in Hester Dam and safeguard it for drinking water supply.

The important recomendations in this plan are to:

  • ● amend the boundary of the Bridgetown Catchment Area and rename it the Hester Dam catchment area
  • ● remove approximately 400 ha of state forest, all privately held land, the golf course and the wastewater treatment plant from the existing Bridgetown Catchment area
  • ● propose a resevoir protection zone and Priority 1 area over the entire proposed Hester Dam catchment area, due to its small size
  • ● include the boundary of the poropsed Hester Dam Catchment area in the shire of Bridgetown-Greenbushes local planning schemes
  • ● restrict access to the Hester Dam to prevent unauthorised vehicular and recreational use
  • ● erect signs at appropriate locations along the new boundary of the Hester Dam Catchment area
