|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.
|All Work Doesn't Mean No Fun!!|
Stockwater was also taken off the break tanks to run into other areas of the farm.
|A Job Well Done|
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.
