Irrigation limited

THE Lower Manning Irrigation Users Group met with MidCoast Water last week to discuss rural extractors water restrictions and agreed on reducing pumping times and limiting extraction to five days per week.

This will be reviewed at another meeting tonight (Wednesday) to reflect current levels and weather conditions.

The Dingo Creek Water Users Association also met to discuss irrigation restrictions. It was agreed to restrict pumping from the Dingo, Wherrol Flat and Caparra Creeks to 10 hours a day or night Wednesday through to Sunday night. Monday and Tuesday are non pumping days. Times could change to reflect weather conditions.
