Western Victoria Irrigation Network to supply recycled water soon!

One of Victoria's major water recycling schemes, the Western Irrigation Network, is one step closer to supporting local farmland irrigation, with the storage dam at Melton Recycled Water Plant being filled. The Western Irrigation Network project is on-track to supply reliable water to local farmers and help irrigate thousands of hectares of farmland from early 2023.

The recently completed, 1.1 gigalitre storage dam at the Melton Recycled Water Plant is now being filled and will be integrated with existing storage to together supply 18.3 gigalitres of recycled water every year by 2050. The $116.3 million project is set to transform the local farming community and expand agricultural production in the Parwan-Balliang region, a win across jobs and growth for Victoria’s agriculture sector.
