Water Tanks – Mudgee
Mudgee is a town in the Central West of New South Wales, Australia. It is in the broad fertile Cudgegong River valley 261 kilometres north-west of Sydney. Mudgee is at the centre of the Mid-Western Regional Council local government area. At the 2011 census, Mudgee had a population of 9,830 people. The Mudgee district lies across the edge of the geological structure known as the Sydney Basin.
Mudgee has developed as a wine producing region and is therefore dependant on wine manufacturing as a major part of its economy. It is also heavily dependant on several major mines in the surrounding area. Other rural produce includes cattle, sheep, wheat, alfalfa, olives, fruit, tomatoes, corn, honey, and dairy products.
The Ulan coal mines feature in the district and during the 19th century, the area was a major gold mining area. The district also produces marble, pottery clays, shale and dolomite. Tourism is also a growing industry based largely on the wineries.
A major focus for the region going forward is water conservation. Water is no longer the freely available commodity that has been in the past and the community will need to have a stronger focus on water harvesting and storage in order to meet demand expectations.
If you would like to increase your water storage capacity for your business or provide an alternative domestic supply for your home, Heritage Water Tanks can offer high-quality water tanks for all your water harvesting and storage needs.
