TRINITY College captain Lach-
lan Arthur has won the prestigious
Tuckwell Scholarship to study at
the Australian National University
The university announced the win-
ners on Tuesday and Lachlan was
named as one of 24 students from
around the nation.
The scholarship means he will re-
ceive $22,000 a year for the length of a
single or double undergraduate degree,
as well as ongoing academic and career
The original call for scholars received
570 applications, which was then nar-
rowed down to a shortlist of 75 to un-
dertake interviews at ANU.
Lachlan completed his studies in
2013 with an ATAR of 99.60 and was
offered a place in the PhB program at
ANU, but deferred his studies for a
year and is currently fulfilling the key
student leadership role at Trinity.
He said he was overjoyed with the
news that the application had been suc-
cessful and plans to study a Bachelor of
Philosophy in Science with a focus on
biology and chemistry.
"I'm really looking forward to being
a part of the PhB program," Lachlan
"Having the opportunity to carry
out research under a mentor is one of
the big reasons I chose ANU."
ANU Vice-Chancellor Professor Ian
Young said the winners were some of
Australia's brightest scholars and also
students who demonstrated a com-
mitment to giving back to the com-

Reser voirs filling quickly
AS you can see from the storage levels in
the below table, almost all of the state's
reservoirs are sitting at a higher level than
at this time last year. Overall, there is an
additional 50,000ML in storage this year
compared to July, 2013.
A WET start to winter has seen
reservoirs in the local area fill up
quicker than expected.
South Para Reservoir levels have
risen by 10 gigalitres in the past 12
months, while Warren Reservoir is
full and Barossa Reservoir is nearing
Presently, Barossa Reservoir is at
93 per cent, with the larger South
Para Reservoir still having some
room to move at 66 per cent.
All three reservoirs are located
close to Williamstown and wa-
ter that overflows from the War-
ren (4.7GL capacity) and Barossa
(4.5GL) reservoirs is designed to
flow into the larger South Para Res-
If all reservoirs become full, water
then spills into local creeks and the
Gawler river system.
An SA Water spokesperson said it
was pleasing to see reservoirs filling
steadily around the state.
"The recent rains have made
our catchments quite damp...if
there is heavy and consistent rain-
fall around our South Para catch-
ment there is every chance the res-
ervoir will continue to increase,"
"In-flows in excess of 10GL per
annum are quite common, though
this year has had a particularly good
Traditionally, reservoir levels in-
crease during winter and spring from
rainfall, according to SA Water.
"So far this month we have had
almost 34 billion litres of water
enter our Adelaide Hills reservoirs
from the rainfall," the spokesperson
"We're currently about 25 per
cent higher when compared to this
time last year, which is a reflection
of how much rainfall we've had in
"Rainfall over the past three weeks
has helped to increase our total level
from 62 per cent to 78 per cent."
