Water for Warrill Irrigation Project
In 2020 Warrill Valley Irrigators approached Council seeking financial support for a feasibility study on potential new water supply opportunities and projects for the Warrill and Fassifern Valleys.
Council engaged Jacobs to undertake the study to map where the investment should logically be, assess demand for additional water and conduct a full economic impact analysis.
To assess the demand for additional water supply in the Warrill and Fassifern Valleys, Council, with industry experts Jacobs, hosted community information sessions in Harrisville and Kalbar in late February 2021.
More than 100 people attended both meetings, showing strong interest in the proposed project.
Relevant community members, producers, farmers, irrigators and financial institutions are invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to understand demand for additional water.
The EOI is a key input to a decision about whether the project will proceed to the next stage of assessment. It does not imply that the project will proceed. However, strong demand will demonstrate significant support for the project, so it's important to ensure you show genuine interest by completing the EOI.
The EOI will close on Monday 15 March 2021.
