The project is intended to reduce salinity in Wellington Dam. It will construct diversions for saline water, a water treatment plan and a weir, and will replace open channels with closed pipes.
The project will improve water security for users and support irrigated agriculture. It will boost agricultural, horticultural and forestry opportunities in the region.
The $396 million project is funded by the Australian Government ($140 million), the Western Australian Government ($37 million) and other partners ($219 million).
Australian Government funding is provided through the National Water Infrastructure Development Fund.
The project is currently in the planning stage.
