The first letter below was sent in January 2020, alerting that it may no longer be possible to provide water from urban hydrants to be used for irrigation purposes during times of drought or when the SVIS scheme is switched off due to low river flows. The second letter is confirmation of this from advice received.
As a result of this, Council can no longer approve tankering of water to areas outside of the urban boundaries for irrigation or commercial/ industrial purposes.
