Rural pipeline systems

> Unmodernised pipeline systems

Our South Lockwood and Eppalock Pipeline systems have been in place for several decades and are older, established systems.

While both offer a year-round supply, the South Lockwood system only runs at high pressure during the irrigation season of November to May.

The difference in costs between un-modernised pipelines and the open air channel systems is the access fee.

Pipeline customers do pay more but have access to the pipeline supply year round.

For more information on fees please see our Schedule of Fees and Charges on our Pricing Information page or call our Customer Support team on 1300 363 200.

All pipeline customers should have their water running into a tank or dam for storage as the pipelines may have water shut off for unplanned repair works without notice.

It is recommended that customers have a minimum of at least three days water in reserve at all times.

 

> Modernised pipeline systems

The fee structure for the new Harcourt Rural Modernised Pipeline System that will be commissioned in late 2014 is based on the variables listed below.

The Infrastructure Charge is composed of two parts, the Network component and the Headwork component.

This is important as it is the Network component that exit fees are calculated on.

If water is traded out of the Harcourt pipeline system to another Coliban Water rural system or, surrendered in part or full to Coliban Water, there are exit fees applicable.

These exit fees are calculated as 10 x the Network component per megalitre sold or surrendered.

The access fees charged will be determined by the size of meter that is fitted and the number of meters.

The size of the meter fitted is determined by the volume of water held on a licence.

For more information on modernised pipeline fees please see our Schedule of Fees and Charges on our Pricing Information page or call our Customer Support Team on 1300 363 200.
