A centre pivot irrigator at a private farm near Horrellville in Canterbury malfunctioned last week, requiring an extremely urgent response from our vacuuming specialists at HydroVac.
The malfunction caused an effluent spill into the irrigation and stock water race, causing possible contamination to water supplies. To mitigate the amount of contamination, HydroVac was called in for emergency response.
Our skilled team spent two days vacuuming effluent from the irrigation pond and taking back to the farm it originated from – all 184,000L of it.
If you have an emergency spill, contact HydroVac – our team operate 24/7 to help you with situations like these.
