About 15 years ago, the neighbours to the north of us installed a couple of drains which emptied on to our place then made their way a short distance down slope to the creek.
Those drains ran water all year, so in August 2019, Jim had a taste of the water. Seemed OK so a hole was dug, a concrete tank installed, pipes laid to catch the water diverting it to the tank, a solar powered pump installed and the protective fence erected.
The water is pumped from that tank to a tank on the hill to the south and thence to troughs by gravity.
A very helpful additional water supply for the north end of the farm.
