Interruption to Supply
Eton Irrigation Water Supply Scheme
Eton Irrigation will be chemically treating for aquatic weed control in the channel system during the following period when water WILL NOT be available.
2nd November 2020 until 7th November 2020
Customers should ensure that they have adequate storage for this period.
Customers are requested to cease pumping at the times stipulated for their respective areas. This will prevent pipelines being drained and reduce the possibility of having to refill these lines. Details of the stipulated times shown on below. The planned program for the year are shown below and are on the Eton Irrigation website.
Should you be unsure as to whether this will affect you, please do not hesitate to call John Badger at Eton Irrigation on 0417 798 913 for clarification. Please have all your offtake numbers available.
