A natural billabong did not exist in the area prior to Hanson activities. Recent social media and media reports are incorrect.

During works on the existing water storage dams in 2007, Hanson created an area which captured surface water. This area was not designed as a dam. Time-series aerial imagery highlights both the initial activities leading to the capturing of water and subsequent filling of the area with stockpile material as part of operations. DEM and DEW officers have investigated this matter and conclude a natural and/or significant water source has not been disturbed by the activities in the area.
