Dilwyn aquifer study

Dilwyn Aquifer study

With the assistance of the Commonwealth and State Governments, Southern Rural Water completed a pre-feasibility study looking at the legal and economic viability of non-traditional ownership of groundwater extraction and distribution infrastructure.

This study was completed to inform future development of the Dilwyn Aquifer in south western Victoria where groundwater is plentiful but very deep and expensive to access. SRW will use this information to inform groundwater management and allocation from this aquifer.

Summary information can be found in the brochures available for download below. The detailed report can be found here.

Dilwyn Infrastructure Ownership - Irrigator Syndicates
