3530 unknown General notes. The water race siphon picked up the water from the upper water race on the left bank of Bannockburn Creek and carried it to the lower water race on the right bank.The outlet point was on the downstream side of Wet Gully. The siphon consisted of approx 110m of old 9 inch (225mm) diameter riveted steel mining pipes. It was installed by Mr Harrison Holloway in the late 1950s to supply irrigation water to his Cairnmuir farm. The siphon was superseded by the Wet Gully dam and pumphouse (location #483) which was installed in the 1970s by Mr Bruce Paterson.
