What is a gravity diversion and when does it need to be compliant?
Many farms in the Gwydir Valley have gravity components internally, however there are limited numbers of gravity diversions for the
purposes of accessing either regulated or unregulated water. You need to check your Works Approval via WaterNSW
register selecting A particular water licence or approval (including
you know your 90AL number OR A particular property
(in relation to water licences or approvals) to find your 90AL number using your Lot and DP.
Then see what has been listed there - if it says diversion channel you have until 1 December 2021 to ensure your meter meets the new metering rules. If not, you must meet the requirements for larger than 500mm diversions by this December or for smallers sites, 1 December 2021.
NOTING as per WSPs the metering installation can be located anywhere between the point of extraction and the first inlet/outlet locations.
