Water and Drainage

Streams, Brooks, lakes and wetlands are all important natural features that can suffer major environmental damage from development. Knowing which way water moves is important when planning for future development and land uses. For example, the communities water supply should typically be located on higher land then a dump or sewage lagoon.

Small lakes and sloughs are scattered throughout the uplands of the reserve. The Elcapo Creek runs through a beautiful large ravine that begins on the south-west border of the reserve and runs north-east into the Qu'Appellee Valley before ending in to Qu'Appellee River. Due to the steep slopes of the Hills, 120 meters [400 ft] to the valley floor, there are also many natural springs along the hillside.
