Arthurs Lake TI Intake Works
If you see earth moving equipment at the Arthurs irrigation outlet here's the explanation from Hydro to Anglers Alliance Tas.
Angler Alliance Tasmania’s had concerns about the civil works that are currently being undertaken on the Midlands Irrigation Scheme off-take at Arthurs Lake, namely that the works may facilitate access to water below the agreed cease to take level.
The works that are currently being undertaken are to allow Tasmanian Irrigation (TI) to access water down to 947.5 m, which is the agreed cease to take level. When construction was originally being undertaken by TI, water levels in the lake were high (only a few cm off spill), and as a result excavation works on the intake could not be completed. Water levels in the lake are now lower allowing TI to complete this work.
