The water stored in Lake Buffalo is used to supplement flows in the Ovens River for irrigation and urban water supply. The dam initially supplied a thriving tobacco industry in the valley, however this has now changed to numerous vineyards.

Access to water storages is more strictly controlled. As stated, Hunter Water maintains one closed surface storage and one closed sub-surface storage. /$file/

Water corporations will support the wellbeing of rural and regional communities by considering recreational values in water management.

They will plan for and provide water services that explicitly consider recreational values, focusing on four key areas: Community engagement to understand recreational objectives relating to water and waterways /recognising-recreational-values. Providing easier and safer access to water storages can lead to significant growth in community use and enjoyment of these important assets.

To calculate our water storages, we measure the water storage levels of our reservoirs over a hour period (8 am - 8 am) every day.

The data is then verified at the end of each week.

Catchments include natural areas such as rivers, wetlands and bushland, and human activities such as farms, towns and industry. The drinking water catchments co square kilometres of land - from north of Lithgow to south of Braidwood, and from Woronora in the east to west of Crookwell.
