The Midlands Irrigation Scheme commenced operations in September 2014 and services the Campbell Town, Ross, Tunbridge, Woodbury, York Plains, Oatlands, Mt Seymour, Jericho and Kempton areas in central Tasmania. Irrigation water is sourced from Arthurs Lake – a water storage owned and operated by Hydro Tasmania. Water flows under gravity into storage at Floods Creek Dam.
Water is delivered throughout the district via pipelines and a number of natural watercourses. A mini-hydro electric generator is situated at Floods Creek, and there are two other pump stations at Tunbridge and Mt Seymour.
