About 60 Goulburn-Murray Water Connections Project employees were officially welcomed to their new working premises, with Tatura Department of Primary Industry staff providing a barbecue on Thursday.
As part of G-MWs business transformation plans, and to provide customers with greater access to its staff and services, 100 G-MW Connections Project staff will now be based at Department of Primary Industries, 255 Ferguson Rd.

According to the G-MW website, G-MW Connections Project, formally Northern Victoria Irrigation Renewal Project (NVIRP), is investing $2
The Connections Project will also remove channels that are no longer required which means many customers can adopt simpler farm layouts and G-MW can minimise the costs of operating and maintaining the channel network.
G-MW’s Connections Project has identified more than 180 Strategic Connection Plan areas. The areas include more than 6000 properties across the Goulburn-Murray Irrigation District that are not currently connected to the backbone channel network.
It is working with these landowners to develop a Strategic Connections Plan for each area and the plan will include water delivery arrangements for each property.
G-MW anticipates it may take at least three months to develop each plan, and more complex plans may take longer, depending on the size and complexity of the SCP area. G-MW’s Connections Project envisages that by 2018, every customer will be connected to a common user system by a connection which is owned/managed by one or more landowners.
