Channel remediation works are taking place in the Shepparton irrigation area as well as the Murray Valley, Rochester, Torrumbarry and Central Goulburn irrigation areas.
G-MW Connections general manager Ian Rodgers said the channel remediation works included clay lining, plastic lining and outer bank remodelling.
‘‘During this year’s winter works program, more than 13 km of channel will be upgraded,’’ Dr Rodgers said.
‘‘Of this, 5.7 km will be undergoing outer bank remodelling and clay lining.’’
Dr Rodgers said the winter works program also meant jobs for local businesses and their staff.
He said the safety of the public, customers, staff and contractors was the number one priority during the works period.
‘‘For safety reasons, public access to the work sites will not be permitted during the construction period,’’ Dr Rodgers said.
The works will also involve large plant and machinery on local roads.
‘‘Often the machinery will need to use back roads to reach works sites, so we ask the community to be extra careful during this works period,’’ Dr Rodgers said.
