Since at least 2014, there has been a proposal to construct a 100 Megalitre dam near the summit of Mount Buller. The official title of the project is “Mt Buller Sustainable Water Security Project”. The project involves the destruction of about 5 hectares of treeless alpine native vegetation, and subtracts about 10 hectares from the existing downhill skifield on Mount Buller.
Federal legislation requires a period of time to allow interested people and organisations to comment. Submissions are due by 22 December.
