Current water in brisbane ranges

Postby RossageRoll » Fri 08 Mar, 2019 8:29 pm

Hi everyone!

Wondering if anyone has been in the brisbane ranges recently and knows how the tanks are looking? More specifically old mildd and little river. It hasn't rained too much and i'm a little concerned :(

Thanks!

For anyone wondering we found some water in the tank at little river (low levels though) and plenty at Stony point picnic area. Boar gully extremely low

I was poking around the Brisbane Ranges this morning when I passed through the Old Mill Walkers Camp. Wandering over to the water tank to check how much water it had in it I found toilet paper in the tank inlet :shock: I'm not sure how it got there but it had obviously been there during yesterday's rain as it was now pretty well mulched. I scrapped it out as best I could, but I'd be treating the tank water at Old Mill for awhile!

Oh yeah, the tank was about a third full.

And After.... I'd definitely be treating it!
