Getting water supply to two dairy sheds

To get water from a stream up the top of the farm down to the dairy shed at the bottom.
A distance of six kilometres over very rugged terrain.
A large excavator was required for a week to make tracks for access and to plough the water pipe into.

Gordon and the team built an intake to supply water to a settling tank.
Then ploughed in a 63mm pipeline some 6 km.
Along the way they ran the water into a number of break tanks to break the water pressure in the pipe line.

Stockwater was also taken off the break tanks to run into other areas of the farm.

The pipeline feeds into two 25,000L water tanks where it then splits off to supply 2 dairy sheds.

The installation was done over 4 days. A very challenging, exhausting but very rewarding project. The water tanks were filling within 20 minutes of the last pipe being joined.
