In a recent letter to landholders, G-MW chairman Llew Vale outlined how irrigators could continue to be connected in an environment where water shares were reducing and channel infrastructure was being cut back from 6000
Mr Vale promised a higher level of transparency and customer engagement in the connections process for the Foodbowl Modernisation Project.
He said grants would be available for ‘‘reasonable costs’’ with the construction of fit-for-purpose connecting works.
