IF YOU have been advised that Goulburn Murray Water Connections is coming onto your land for upgrade work — be warned.
After seeing what happened to our farm during the channel upgrade, and after speaking with other damaged rural farm owners, the advice is: Don’t trust them. Don’t believe them, get it in writing. Before they start, have a contract for everything they are going to do. Don’t let them use your track or your land. Document everything. Take photos. Get a lawyer.
Seems that most farmers who have had dealings with GMW Connections are well out of pocket or are arguing about it for a long time.
