Water cut halt sought

PRUNE THE CUTS: Coonawarra Vignerons president Pete Balnaves has called for the next round of water cuts to irrigators to be halted.

A PROMINENT Coonawarra wine industry leader has called on the state’s environment department to halt planned cuts to the sector’s water allocation.

This comes as the department confirmed a further 3.75pc will be trimmed from irrigators in the 3A management zone, which covers Coonawarra’s expansive wine industry.

It is estimated the cut will take around $2m of water from the zone, which is part of a stepped 15pc reduction.
