Lower Murray Water has been successful in obtaining funding for the Sunraysia Modernisation Project 2. On 13th June LMW received notice of the $3.025 million funding provided by the Commonwealth National Water Infrastructure Development Fund (NWIDF).  The total project cost is $6 million, with the costs shared between agricultural developers (50:50 funding) and the fund. 

Works are expected to commence as soon as possible with the schedule outlining water be delivered by the 2019 irrigation season.


Important information:

  • At least 50% privately funded by agricultural developers 
  • Maximum of 50% Government funded - capital component
  • Opportunity to give a cost benefit and water security for our in-district irrigators
  • Agricultural developers have determined the location for development via the RoI process




The Business Case:

What will it achieve?

A stronger Sunraysia via jobs, development, growth and cost reductions for our growers.

Our role as LMW is to deliver water, with new agriculture developments happening regardless. By delivering additional water, LMW can keep costs down for our rural customers.
