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.

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.
