The project will mean additional water for irrigation and stock watering.

Project overview

The project involves construction of an off-stream water storage dam and pump station to improve water security and drought resilience to the region.

The pump station will transfer water to enable full linkage and integration of the Eurobodalla region supply system. The project will increase water storage capacity by 3,000 megalitres (ML) and provide an estimated additional 581 ML per annum for downstream irrigators and stock watering.

Construction is expected to be completed in 2025.
