Yanco Winter Works 2019: supply interruptions from the end of May
We have an extensive works program planned for the 2019 winter period including more automation, some channel lining and structure upgrades.
Like last year, our focus will be on minimising impacts to water supply where possible.
Our engagement team have already started talking to customers in impacted areas.
Lake View Branch Canal (LVBC) expansion: This project has been rescoped to run over two years. This year we will upgrade the Beltrame and Leagues Club Regulators. Works will commence at the start of June for completion by the end of July.
Golgelderie Branch Canal 2 (GBC2): this project involves the automation of structures escapes and offtakes on a section of the GBC2. Works will commence at the start of June for completion by the end of July.
Mirrool Creek Branch Canal (MCBC): this project will rectify ongoing performance issues with the upper pools of the MCBC. Works include the addition of Flume Gates to the first 12 regulators after the offtake to improve control of flows. Works will commence at the start of June for completion by the end of July.
Yanco S&D pumped pipeline system: construction on Stage 2 of the Yanco Stock & Domestic Project commenced in April and will be completed by the end of July, in a continuation of the works started last year. Several channels will be removed, and this has given the opportunity for some customers who no longer need stock and domestic access to exit the system.
Warburn Channel Lining: Lateral 258 will be lined in the upcoming winter works period. Works also include desilting, and channel bank restoration. Works will commence at the start of June for completion by the end of July.
Outlet program: as part of our modernisation program we are installing new, and upgrading, metered farm outlets so they are automation ready. These works will increase over the winter period to fit in around other works.
