We are calling for volunteers to take part in a low flows trial in early 2015.
The trial will explore practical ways to pass low flows from your dam. There
is a range of possible solutions, but this challenge needs localised problem
solving. We'll work in close consultation with you, and importantly, you won't
lose access to water from your dam.
By providing low flows from your dam, you will be helping to improve
catchment health and contributing to the future of premium food and wine
production in the Mount Lofty Ranges.
To be eligible to participate, you must:
• be a landholder/manager in the Mt Lofty Ranges with one or more
• be willing to liaise with natural resources staff
• allow access to property, with your consent, to assess, install and monitor
All installation and monitoring costs will be covered by the program.
If you are interested in being involved, please contact us by Friday
21st November 2014.
To find out more, contact project manager Paul Wainwright on 8204 8562 or
firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to www.environment.sa.gov.au/lowflows

THE Australian Taxation Office is remind-
ing those lodging their own tax return that the
deadline is this Friday.
Assistant commissioner Karen Anstis said the ATO
expects around 350,000 people to lodge in the last
"We're encouraging people who haven't lodged yet
to take advantage of myTax, our new online lodge-
ment service for people with more straightforward
tax affairs," Ms Anstis said.
"All you have to do is check the information we
have already entered for you, fill in any gaps, such as
deductions, and submit."
Although most registered tax agents can lodge re-
turns for their clients later than the October 31 dead-
line, anyone planning to use a tax agent for the first
time, or a different one to last year, must contact their
agent before the end of the month to avoid penal-
If you are concerned about not meeting the dead-
line, call the ATO on 13 28 61.
A GAWLER councillor wants to put
the brakes on the current parking
system used at the Gawler Show.
Adrian Shackley called for a review
of the current parking system in a let-
ter presented at Gawler Council's Infra-
structure and Environmental Services
meeting last month.
"I think council and Show Society
need to work together to get more park-
ing options for Gawler Show," he said in
Councillor Shackley suggested new
parking options could be established on
the south side of the South Para -- Par-
ridla Taikondi reserve and the empty
paddock adjacent 14th Street and Law-
rence Avenue, with an extra entry gate
near the river junction.
"All these areas will be closer than the
places near the swimming pool where
people were parking this year -- up to
600-metres-plus walk," he said.
"I would also like to see a review of
roads and parking around the terraces
-- Nixon, Thomas, Paterson."
When new kerbing was installed a few
years ago, the terraces were narrowed so
that effectively parking was restricted to
one side of the road, according to Coun-
"A wide verge was created with roll-
over kerbs which 'encourages' people
to park on the verge rather than on
the road...(it has) caused problems ever
since," he said.
"If the kerb was placed back about two
metres on the northern side to create ad-
equate space for parallel parking on both
sides, that would create 45-50 car parks
on Thomas Terrace and the part of Vic-
toria Terrace south of the rail line.
"That would encourage train com-
muters to park on the north side of
Thomas Terrace and reduce demand for
commuters near the Gawler Central sta-
tion with all the parking/movement is-
sues discussed there over the years."
Councillor Shackley said the change
would remove verge parking issues and
also create more of a boulevard effect,
with wider corners for terraces.
"It would also reduce traffic cutting
through Porter Street which causes some
safety issues for schoolchildren and oth-
ers," he said.
The IES committee voted unani-
mously to request council staff provide a
report on designated car parking options
on both sides of Fotheringham Terrace,
Paterson Terrace, Nixon Terrace and
Show parking review

BACK END...People often complain about the amount of parking on Murray Street being minimal. It does not
help when people park like this.
Fire season preps
PREPARATION activities are now under way
for the 2014/15 fire season in the Mount Lofty
Ranges and Mid North.
Twelve experienced firefighters are set to begin
work in early November with ForestrySA, to ensure
it can meet its fire protection commitment.
A further 10 fire season temporary staff are set to
commence later in November.
A number of these staff have already taken part in
a CFS-run briefing and proscribed burn activities,
serving as valuable refresher training in the lead-up
to the season.
ForestrySA fire tankers have also been serviced in
readiness for the months ahead.
