Macalister Irrigation District Modernisation Phase 1B Project
The Macalister Irrigation District modernisation phase 1B Project will upgrade the Southern-Tinamba Supply Zone by replacing the upper channel system with a gravity pipeline and automation and modernisation of the lower channel system.
This project will improve water efficiency through reduced losses and increase water availability and security through the creation of 9,700 ML of water for productive use.
The $60 million project is jointly funded by the Australian Government ($20 million), the Victorian Government ($20 million) and other partners ($20 million).
Australian Government funding is provided through the National Water Infrastructure Development Fund.
Construction is expected to be completed mid 2021.
