Sub surface irrigation systems were installed in 2011 at the Berri & Barmera ovals a cost at the time of two million dollars, partly funded by the state & federal governments.

The replacement systems were funny funded under a Federal Government Program.

Berri Barmera Council CEO Karyn Burton said the sub surface irrigation system has been a problem at both ovals.

The new systems are seen to both reduce maintenance costs as well as deliver a more consistent playing surface.
