Water reservoir at Daylesford. Dammed in the late C19th after the goldrush, the reservoir sits in a natural valley with a permanent creek running through it. It is deep, at over 100 metres, with a small surface area for the volume meaning there is less evaporation. Water from the lake is pumped uphill to the header tank on top of an old volcano above the town.
