This is what 20% looks like

Cain Curran Reservoir has just dropped below 20% of its capacity, conjuring up visions of drought once again in central Victoria. For much of the first ten years of this century it hovered around this mark, before drenching rains in 2010/11 transformed it into a magnificent wetland. With the water level so low it brings views of the Loddon River and its tributaries into stark relief.

I wonder what 2016 holds …

  1. Geoff-so dry! I have photos from April 2007 when I saw the river emerge from the ‘lake’ for the first time – now it is like the river itself is dry. Chris
