Basin Plan pumping $1.5b into on-and-off-farm water projects

A funding pool of $1.5 billion is on offer for water recovery projects across the Murray Darling Basin and the Federal Water Department is starting to splash out.

The Murray-Darling Basin Water Infrastructure Program is open to tenders from all Basin urban, industrial and water metering projects.

The Water Infrastructure Program is responsible for recovering the 450 gigalitre bucket of so-called ‘upwater’, which is a particular tranche of the Basin Plan to return consumptive use to the environment. Upwater can only be recovered if it has no negative socio-economic impacts.
