GMW have been busy upgrading the Bulls Siphon near the Waranga Western Channel during the 2018 winter irrigation shut down period.
$2.5 million work on Bulls Siphon, which was designed and constructed ‘in-house’ by GMW, was delivered on time and about $200,000 under budget. The project involved removing the old deteriorated structure and replacing it with a new four-barrel three-metre diameter reinforced concrete structure, now flowing normally since the 6th August before the opening of the irrigation season.

Great with their savings they can afford to pay my settlement for inundating our hay crop late last year due to a telemetry failure on one of their gates. This is a gate that I am charged $900 a year to have read remotely. It gets even worse. I have been charged for years for an S&D outlet that doesn’t exist. After years of complaining with no response the threat of litigation got an inspection by GMW staff who confirmed no S& D outlet exits. For a $195 fee I can get the non existing outlet removed from our account. Now the banking Royal commission is over i look forward to Sharman Stones recommendation for a GMW Royal Commission. How many other customers have been charged for non existing infrastructure? How many other customers have experienced crop losses and significant financial loss by GMW unexplained inundation then are forced to litigate to seek any form of compensation?

Great work GMW!
