Water and Bores (see irrigation plan)
Water is available from a solar pump on the bore (about 33m deep) on Lot 5. This water is pumped to holding tanks and troughs through out the property. The bore has a direct feed to the trough in the western cattle yard, it then feeds a 5,000 gal tank adjacent to the eastern cattle yards on Lot 6 with connections to a trough in that paddock. The bore is also connected to a 10,000 gal concrete tank (in average condition) at the rear of the plateau on Lot 6. From the large concrete tank there is a connection to a cattle trough in the lower grazing area on Lot 5. There are 2 further cattle troughs in the valley on Lot 6. There is a further trough in the lower grazing area of lot 6 however this has been disconnected at this point in time.
Maintenance and servicing of the bores during the term of the lease would be the responsibility of the lessee.
