The Gunbower Forest. NEED FOR IMPROVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 19 June 1914

The Gunbower Forest. iNTWvD V'OR IMPROVliMrCNT. The determination of the Comma residents to protect the 'nafrnihcout ci.clypls that pic tures<iucly line the Ounbower Creek is tempting some ludiffeiuit people to infer that :i fussy desire exists to set a crippling limit to the output of timber from On bower Forest. Such, however, is not the case. So far from wishing to curtail mid discourse the Gun bower Forest timber industry, there is a general mid genuine desire to in evervreasonableway to foster aucl encourage it. Coliuua wants in deed to see this valuable and per. manent asset to the State developed to the greatest extent and made the most of. At present that is verv far from being done. There is any amount of talk about forestry in the metropolitan newspapers and on political platforms. The public are starred every now and jijfiiin by statistical summaries showing wliat wonderful tilings are done hv forest conservation in America, ami these are usually followed up by...

There was a large atten dance of members, and the progress shown in the report and financial statement presented was regarded as satisfactory. Both were unan imously adopted.

District News. GUNBOWER. NEW IRRIGATION WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 19 June 1914

District News. (Prom our Correspondents.) OUXROWHR. NKW INKIGA'i'lON WATKK .SIJI'I'I.V. A syndicate of local fanners lias been formed for the purpose of pumping water from the Murray ? into the Ounhower Creek for irriga tion purposes. The movement is the result of the serious shortage of water consentient upon the recent drought. It is also stimulated by a general desire to improve the summer water supply. At present that supply is poor and very pre carious, for Ounhower has not yet been taken over by the Water Com mission, and everthing is left to individual enterprise. Landholders can of course put down irrigation pumps into the Ounhower Creek; but, unfortunately, that stream dries down to a narrow ditch by about January of each year, so that the supply fails just when it is most wanted. This deprivation is espe cially felt in the neighborhood of Fox Island, just above Onnbower. The land both on the Fox Island (which is made by u circuit of the Gunbower Creek wateis) and off it is...
