The 2022/23 rural season has opened with an allocation of 100% for the twelfth year in a row,.

Channels that aren't on the roster (unrostered channels) run on demand of water orders made throughout the season.

Pipeline systems

Our rural pipeline systems offer a year-round supply of water. However, the South Lockwood system only runs at high pressure during the rural season.

Pipelines can be unexpectedly shut-off for unplanned repair.

Make sure you:

  • run your water into a tank or dam for storage
  • have at least three-days of water stored at any time
