Southern Rural Water is reviewing the land that was designated as recreational areas (areas where the public can go) around Blue Rock, Lake Glenmaggie and Lake Merrimu around 32-46 years ago.

Different parts of this land now:

  • fall within our gazetted recreational areas
  • are not useful as part of our overall operations
  • have been sold
  • are not manageable for any recreational or public purpose, or
  • Should be restricted from public use for operational/ safety and/or environmental reasons.

It is important to understand that the lake or dam itself i.e. the water body will remain within the recreational area.

As part of our review, Southern Rural Water has drafted a map of the areas we think should no longer be designated as recreational areas. These changes will be considered and may result in  restricted/prohibited  access, or sold.

We know that people who regularly use or live around Blue Rock and Lake Glenmaggie may be interested in having a say in the boundaries of these areas.  Maps of the draft areas are available on our website (place link here).  We will take all feedback into account when we consider the final boundaries.  We will also write to anyone who provides a submission to let them know how their feedback influenced our final decisions.

You can provide written feedback by:

  • Emailing to srw@srw.com.au
  • Writing to us at PO Box 153, MAFFRA, Victoria, Australia, 3860, or
  • Messaging us via Facebook

All feedback must be submitted by 4pm Monday 19 December, 2016.

You can also speak to Land Sales Officer Colin McQuillen on 51393121 if you’d like more information or want to clarify anything before you make a submission.
