In 1924, the workers at Lock 3 near Overland Corner were obviously frustrated at the provision of medical-care and petitioned for an arrangement with the Barmera Hospital. Although the proposal was initially approved, as works were nearing completion at the site, the matter was not proceeded with. The men and their families moved on to Lock 2 about September 1924 for work there and an agreement was entered into with the Morgan hospital.
