The document provides a summary of the local management proposal offered to Eton Irrigation.
In mid-October 2019 water allocation holders in the Eton channel irrigation scheme will receive an offer document setting out the proposed terms of the transition to local management. Allocation holders have until 25 November 2019 to return the customer response form.
The Eton Board recommends allocation holders support the offer for the scheme to be managed locally by the irrigator-owned entity, Eton Irrigation.
For local management to proceed, customers representing at least 70% of the water allocations by volume will need to accept the offer. A decision on whether the offer has been accepted is expected in December 2019.
For more information, or assistance in completing the customer response form, please contact LMA Support Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0468 960 538.
The following documents have been made available to assist eligible water allocation holders with their decision.
This document is being sent to all water allocation holders in the Eton Irrigation Scheme and sets out the proposed terms of the transfer of the Eton Irrigation Scheme from SunWater to Eton Irrigation. Customers are being asked to vote on the proposal. Voting forms must be received in Brisbane by 25 November 2019.
This is the standard distribution water supply contract that will be deemed to apply to customers of Eton Irrigation if local management proceeds. This will replace the existing “channel and pipeline” contract that exists between customers and SunWater.
These are the proposed rules for the Eton Irrigation Cooperative.
The transition constitution will apply for a period prior to the transfer, and should the transfer proceed, for a short period following the transfer until the conversion to a cooperative is complete.
These are the accounting policies that have been used in preparing the offer document and will be adopted by Eton Irrigation when local management proceeds.
