Tasmanian Irrigation Tranche III: Phase One
The project involves the construction and augmentation of multiple irrigation schemes in Tasmania.
Irrigation schemes covered by the project include:
- Don Irrigation Scheme
- Sassafras Wesley Vale Irrigation Scheme
- Fingal Irrigation Scheme
- Northern Midlands Irrigation Scheme
- Tamar Irrigation Scheme
The project will support inter-connectivity, enhancement and modernisation of irrigation schemes, with the potential to enhance economic development by the movement of water to its highest economic use.
The Australian Government is providing $100 million towards these projects. The projects will be jointly funded by the Australian and Tasmanian governments with at least a matched co-contribution from the Tasmanian Government and other partners.
Australian Government funding will be provided through the National Water Infrastructure Development Fund.
This project is currently in planning.
