The project will construct a pipeline network using high-quality recycled water from the Sunbury, Melton and Bacchus Marsh treatment plants to create a new Parwan/Balliang Irrigation Scheme.
The project will provide a new and secure recycled water supply to support viable agricultural expansion in the Parwan/Balliang region.
The $116.3 million project is jointly funded by the Australian Government ($48.1 million), Victorian Government ($65.6 million) and other partners ($2.6 million).
