Garran Oval

(Question No 801)

Mr Stefaniak asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice:

In relation to Garran Oval:

(1) What was the total cost of installing the solar powered irrigation system at the Oval;

(2) Do you plan to install such systems on other ovals in Canberra, if so, which ones and when, if not why not;

(3) Did you receive a quote for hooking an irrigation system up to electricity at Garran Oval, if so, what was the quote if not, why not;

(4) Since this system is solar powered will that mean the oval has to be watered during the day or can it be used at any time in a 24 hour period;

(5) What times is the Garran Oval currently watered, and is it in compliance with water restrictions in the Territory.

Mr Wood

: The answer to the member's questions is as follows:

(1) The total cost for the solar power system, not including the irrigation component, was $4,396.

(2) Similar systems may be considered in the future in situations where mains power is not readily available. There are no immediate plans for such installations.
