Winter Works

Fill your dams and tanks to secure your winter water supply

The 2021/22 irrigation season will finish on 15 May and the 2022/23 season will open on 15 August.

During the irrigation off-season, GMW lowers and dewaters channels to enable the crucial maintenance of our channel network.

We cannot guarantee that you will have access to water from the channel network for domestic and stock or irrigation purposes in this period, due to channel maintenance requirements. Your channel could be drawn down at any point during the winter period.

We encourage our gravity irrigation and domestic and stock customers to plan for their winter water needs and consider filling their dams and tanks before 15 May to guarantee a winter water supply. Tuesday May 10 is the last day to submit water orders to ensure delivery.

For more information, including any questions you have, please phone our Customer Experience Team on 1800 013 357 and they will connect you to your local Customer Service Manager.
