I would just settle to live on a lake, but that would just be awesome! Well done.

If they were Seaplanes, maybe they were looking for a place to land. There is an idea, charge a landing/take-off fee.

Sure, I don't mind sharing, it might help others to get into it. The basic earthworks were $40k, pump and motor $10k, Diesel to fill $1k. Spent another $5k on drainage on my property. Really lucky to chance it with a wet Winter here and filled it straight up. For me being on farming land I have probably recouped $25k in extra production from my land this year so it is somewhere near half paid for in my mind.(I am telling myself this anyway??)

I did a lot of research and the regulations don't adequately cover this sort of project. If I went about asking the questions about whether you can build a Dam of this size they would have said no permits to be issued for Dams of this size. If I had mentioned to the authorities that be, about filling it with water and irrigating out of it, I would have got a similar approach. Govt. bodies are really stretched for resources here and I am 40kms (25miles)from the nearest Town and the Dam is not visible from the road. I am waiting for a Satellite photo to show it up and then I have to start answering questions. Just had to grow some Balls or it was never going to happen

Will be having an opening in about a Month. All invited!! And seriously if any of you guys are over here in OZ, give me a call.
