What has been happening?
In 2018, the Victorian Government completed its review of delivery share arrangements, in support of northern Victorian irrigation communities as they adjust to rapid and continuing change in land and water use.
The review set clear outcomes for the Sunraysia and Goulburn-Murray irrigation districts, with specific actions proposed that help achieve those outcomes. The Outcomes and Actions Reports for each irrigation district can be downloaded from the delivery share review portal.
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning is now working with Lower Murray Water and Goulburn-Murray Water and their customers to further develop these actions and put them in place. We are working closely with the irrigation community to make sure irrigators’ needs are understood, and the changes we are making support a productive and profitable irrigation sector.
What do I need to know?
The following fact sheets provide important general information about delivery share. For specific information in your irrigation district, please contact your rural water corporation directly.
The delivery share review also set actions for returning the benefits of water recovered through the Connections Project to irrigators. These actions are now complete. Click here to learn how the irrigators' share will be distributed.
