On-ground works are nearing completion for the Connections Project, the $2 billion investment in irrigation infrastructure modernisation in the Goulburn-Murray Irrigation District (GMID). Once complete, the final water recovery can be confirmed and distributed.
The Irrigators’ Share Consultative Committee (ISCC) – appointed by the Minister for Water in June 2019 – has been taking a close look at options to best distribute the up to 75 GL of water recovery from Stage 1 of the Connections Project that will be returned to irrigators.
The ISCC has explored a range of ways to share the benefits of the water recovery and is now seeking feedback from GMID delivery share-holders on the proposed approach.
