West Wimmera Rural Water Supply Feasibility Project
Southern Grampians Shire Council is greatly supportive of the West Wimmera Rural Water Supply Project - Feasibility Study as water infrastructure, such as this could unlock the potential for greater agricultural diversification and value added opportunities, generating economic and population growth for the region.
The project is particularly important for the area to the north of the shire around Balmoral, which is expected to benefit from the project. Our land suitability mapping has indicated that the area around Balmoral is well suited to horticultral production should water be avaliable.
Preliminary estimates are between $75-80 million, with contributions sought from Land Holders, Grampians Wimmera Mallee Water and Government
