The intake failed to deliver 8 m3/sec water flow for a period of 3-4 hours in the early hours of this morning cutting water flow off and draining the small buffer storage we have. A partial fix was undertaken around 5.00am this morning and full water flow was reinstated at 6.00am.
Irrigators, please check your water race flow and turn back on when the water arrives. The buffer pond flow is catching up now so please check your irrigators again say 4-5 hours after your normal water delivery time if you were ordering water on a normal day.
Investigations are underway to resolve the issue at the intake today.
We will keep you updated.
