The Cedar Pocket water supply scheme has 11 bulk customers holding the medium and high priority water access entitlements.
It was established in 1985 following the construction of the Cedar Pocket Dam, to support irrigation for the local dairy industry. All irrigators take their water supply directly from the natural water courses. Cedar Pocket Dam is concrete gravity dam that holds up to 730ML. Releases from the Dam are made manually.
The scheme is regulated under the Mary Basin Resource Operations Plan (ROP) issued September 2011.
