News Release

Commissioning of the Midlands Water Scheme was successfully completed in July, 2014 and its performance is exceeding expectations.

The distribution system was commissioned in June and some farmers received water in May and June. Water will now be delivered through August and September, to farmers who require supply, with the first irrigation season to officially open on 1 October, 2014.
