Water Efficiency

WEP works completed

Funded by the Australian Government for $177.5 million, the Water Efficiency Project (WEP) set out to deliver 15.9 GL of annual water savings by improving water efficiency and irrigation standards for over 1000 customers across the Goulburn-Murray Irrigation District.

As of October 2023, the Water Efficiency Project (WEP) has now completed all works required to achieve our water savings target of 15.9GL.

WEP has upgraded and automated infrastructure across the Goulburn-Murray Irrigation District, reducing water lost to channel leakage and seepage, as well as inaccurate water meters.
