Welcome to the Start of Season newsletter for our gravity irrigation customers.
Welcome to the Start of Season newsletter for our gravity irrigation customers. We had a busy winter works period, which delivered an $8 million program of Maintenance and Capital Works and approximately 22,000 hours to enhance the capacity of our irrigation network. Thank you to our staff, contractors and the community throughout this period in delivering another successful winter works program.
By all reports, Goulburn-Murray Water (GMW) is heading into a busy delivery season. The latest updates from staff on the ground indicate our delivery infrastructure (storages, channels and service points) is now ready for operations from 15 August, which is the start of the gravity irrigation season.
Over the next year, in consultation with our customers, we will develop a Gravity Irrigation Service Plan that will provide long term financial modelling and a greater focus on planning over the next two regulatory periods (2024 – 2032). This is an exciting and critical piece of work. I encourage anyone who would like to get involved to have your say. Please stay tuned for upcoming announcements on our website in the coming months. If you would like to stay in touch with us to find out more on our engagement activities, visit www.gmwater.com.au/yoursay or email firstname.lastname@example.org
While the last 12 months have been a challenging time for many of us, most GMW staff have worked from home since 2020, or started their workday from home. We hope that the opportunities will be more frequent to meet face to face this coming irrigation season.
The team and I are looking forward to assisting you in managing your water needs for the upcoming irrigation season. I wish you all the best for the 2021/22 irrigation season.
Manager Distribution Services, GMW
