The use of water races for any purpose other than stock water requires an application to Council. You can find more information in Council’s Water Race Policies on how the races are used and managed.

Incorrect take from the water race is an enforceable offence under the water race bylaw [PDF, 105 KB]. If supply is low, the Council may require all domestic irrigation to cease.
