The opening allocations for the coming season have been announced on 1 July for Macalister Irrigation District, Werribee Irrigation District, Bacchus Marsh Irrigation District and Deutgam groundwater.
The Victorian Government has announced $10.4m funding to complete modernisation of the Macalister Irrigation District in a four-year program commencing this winter.
The MID2 project will reconfigure the Newry irrigation supply with pipeline replacing channels and automation of outlets. There will also be upgrades and reconfiguration of the Nuntin supply network. A large proportion of the funding will go towards channel and outlet reconfiguration upgrades across the district.
