Tim O’Sullivan

Cuts to the supply of irrigation water are no longer a problem on Tim O'Sullivan's family's farm, thanks to a storage pond that holds enough water for up to six weeks of irrigation.The $1.4 million storage pond is gravity fed from the river. It's filled when river flows are high, so when the summer dry comes and the supply is shut off, the stored water is used for irrigation
