Mokoan – the original 1968 sales pitch

leave a comment »

Images of the original brochure on the development of Lake Mokoan have been received by the Watchdog from the Newton family of Whitfield.

You can click on the images to enlarge them for reading.

It is interesting to note that the brochure states, “The harnessing of the water resources of the Broken River and its tributaries by the Lake Mokoan and Nillahcootie Reservoirs is a majot item in the Victorian Government;s 1963 Ten Year Plan of widespread water conservation.”

Back then, the evaporation was recognised and by “working in harmony” with Lake Eildon, the evaporation was not considered a problem.

Maybe John Thwaites and all those involved should study this original brochure to see how the government of the day worked in the interests of the irrigators and the environment.
