Water Safety

We ask all members of the community not to swim in our irrigation channels or drink any water supplied by us.

Southern Rural Water distributes water to irrigators through automated channel networks. The volume of water flowing in these channels is regulated by a series of automated doors and gates that can open or close at any time, causing danger for swimmers.

Our channels are not for swimming. Please visit one of our recreational facilities or the local pool and follow safe swimming rules.

Water from ANY source managed by us is untreated water for domestic & stock or irrigation use only. It should not be used for human consumption without first being properly treated.
