Temporary Pumping Permits
For us to deliver water in the best possible way, we need to account for all access. Our customers have told us that they sometimes need to access our channel system away from their outlet for filling spray tanks and washing down harvesters. It is important that all access is authorised to avoid any regulatory issues.
You can apply, at no charge, for a Temporary Pumping Permit to access the channel system for small amounts of water.
The temporary permit authorises this type of access for this season and will help us better understand scale and value of this service to customers for the future.
You are eligible if:
• You are a current irrigation customer
• You have access to a channel system
• You will be washing down your harvester or filling a spray tank
• You will not use more than 0.5 Megalitre (500,000 litres) for this purpose, this season
For more information, or to apply for a Temporary Pumping Permit contact us on (02) 6962 0200.
