The Southern Forests Irrigation Scheme water sales closed at 12 noon on Wednesday 28 February 2018.
During water sales, irrigators applied for a water entitlement by lodging an application and a deposit with the SF Irrigation Co-operative Ltd.
An offer to purchase does not constitute an acceptance that water is able to be supplied to a given property or landholder. After the close of water sales, the Co-operative will assess all applications for compatibility with the aims, terms and conditions of the proposed scheme.
The Co-operative will endeavour to satisfy as many applications as possible subject to the capital budget, operating costs and approval constraints. This process may involve a review of the initial scheme design.
Once the scheme design has been confirmed, all applicants will be advised of the outcome. If an application cannot be accepted, the Co-operative will refund any deposit in full.
The Co-operative will have until up to 30 May 2018 to complete the acceptance process.
