Can anyone tell me if its legal to use a petrol water pump to run my Highbanker? I called the DPI and the guy i spoke with had no idea..

I've read the fossicking info on the DPI, but the way it reads, it only counts if you are using earth moving equipment.. anywho.. any info would be appreciated..

Iam guessing you are talking NSW? It is fine to run a pump for a highbanker as you are not using the pump for surface disturbance, excavation or processing but to move water from point a(river or creek) to point b(highbanker)

If your in the Tamworth area I'd be checking the local regulations as I believe some areas there highbanking is not allowed.

I believe individual councils have tryed to implement their own rules in a few places but i believe they were not actually alowed to do this and got stopped Question The only way they could maybe do this is on council owned land Question
