Because there is a substantial travel time for water released from the dam to reach the downstream users, we require orders with sufficient notice period to allow timely release and so that we can manage our stored water efficiently.
Notice periods for water ordering and cancellations are listed below. Please plan your water requirements before ordering and we ask that you keep to these times so the appropriate releases can be made.
Levels Plain irrgators ‐ your area is differentiated due to the time it takes for water to reach you.
