The Resources of Rooleyson

Rooleyson has continued developing as a strong city while filling the expectations of its residents. The council has been a very co-operative council, helping the development of the city. A lot of people wonder how the council has built such a great city so fast with the current world wide conditions and how they've been able to stabilise its ecnomy without so much hassle in the council. But one thing that people have been wondering the most is how the city can balance out resources.

As shown in previous entries in The Rooleyson Journal, the city has a strong production of heavy industry, manufaturing and high tech and offices in particular. This has provided with great export opportunities and deals. The production of these will continue, though the heavy industry production may come to a stop due to environmental concerns, forcing the council to rely on imports from other cities. But, as for the natural resources, the city currently produces most of its own natural resources but does rely on some import.


The city of Rooleyson has a major production of water, being built at the intersection of two main rivers, the Kanga and the MacJohnson Rivers. There is no problem with prodcution when it comes to water because of this. It also allows for the city to provide exports to other nearby cities in need of water. The council at the moment is having debates about the future development and how this can impact on the water production. More water towers, storage and treatment centres will be built though, along with a proposed plan of a dam.

Agriculture is another major important natural resource, and another major production in Rooleyson. Once again, the major production also allows for the city to export to other cities in need. The council is also debating about this issue too, especially as areas of fertile land are running out due to the new farms built. The farming community of Laree is the only area of agriculture in the city and probably only will be due to the plans of development of the southern suburbs being built over spare fertile land.

Onto the more pollutive production, electricity currently is in a stable state of production. No overproduction, no underproduction. Environmental concerns though have come in the way, but the council have come up with two solutions being put in place. One of them is a proposed new area for waste centres and power plants, while the other, currently being put in place, is wind farms ontop of Morawee Hill and possibly on the Old Rooley Range. Current power stations are located in the Tamewood Industrial Project.

The dealing of waste in the city is also another quite stable production. Waste dumps, landfills, treatment and recycling centres are all located in the T.I.P.. Just like with electricity, it has come in problems with the environmental concerns, though new waste treatment centres and dumps will be located in the planned section of the city where new power plants will also go.

Oil production has been a more minor production in the city due to the limited areas of oil. With the further development of the city, it may have to start relying on imported oil. Currently, there are two major areas of oil production, the Morawee Oil Field (located on the south slope of Morawee Hill) and the Rooleyson Oil Fields (located in a hidden valley in the eastern slopes of the Old Rooley Range). These oil fields will still keep producing oil for the city to provide on, and are currently the only source of oil for the city, but is still able to stabilise the city. Trade deals with other cities to import oil are currently being arranged.
