Report on the Creswick Water Supply Catchment - A Proposal for Proclamation
A Land Capability Assessment of the Creswick Water Supply Catchments was prepared by L D Russell of the former Soil Conservation Authority, and published in May 1979. The study examined the environments and land capability of the catchments to the reservoirs which formed part of the town water supply system for Creswick. Fifteen map units were identified, mapped and rated for various residential uses and for intensive cultivation. In general, the basalt-based map units have a higher capability for the specified uses than do the sedimentary-based map units. However, in both cases, the capability declined with increasing slope or poorer drainage.
