The Water Efficiency Project (WEP) has been completed! Thanks to the effort of our team in Echuca during our winter works, the WEP was officially completed in October 2023. All works required to achieve our water savings target of 15.9GL have now been met.


Project completion

The successful delivery of WEP has improved water efficiency and irrigation standards for over 1000 customers across the Goulburn-Murray Irrigation District (GMID).

The work of WEP has also reduced ongoing asset liability and costs for Goulburn-Murray Water (GMW) and its customers.

As we focus our efforts on closing out a project of this size, with this many moving parts, we reflect on the hard work and dedication of our team and the communities we worked with, particularly when wet conditions challenged us all in late 2022.

GMW is immensely grateful for the efforts and resilience of our team and communities right across the GMID. Over the coming months, we will finalise our work and arrange water savings audits.

A huge thank you and congratulations to everyone who helped or supported delivering this community-changing project.
