G-MW is about to unveil a plan to save $20 million and hold down water prices over the next five years.

The G-MW board endorsed the plan today (Wednesday) and the corporation has immediately embarked on consultation with irrigators.

The document called Blueprint will be unveiled in the next few weeks as irrigators and their water service committees are invited to public meetings.

Managing director Gavin Hanlon said they expected to deliver $20 million in operational savings over the coming five years.

He outlined three components of the savings: operational savings, the Connections project and tarrif pricing.

Mr Hanlon said that implementing all three initiatives simultaneously is critical.

‘‘The savings and cost containment wont be achieved unless all three initiatives are fully implemented.’’

One goal will be to keep irrigation water costs down, although the average prices will vary across water districts.
