Mid Murray Council
About the project
The Mid Murray Council is the lead Recipient for a consortium of Councils covering the regions of Mid Murray and Goyder.
The project will develop Integrated Water Management Plans for the townships of Tungkillo and Palmer, as well as Integrated Management Plans for the townships of Burra and Eudunda, including catchment investigations for Burra.
The project will provide infrastructure solutions to:
- minimise water consumption throughout their own operations, providing leadership to the community;
- source water from alternative sources to minimise demand on the River Murray and other raw water resources, to maintain irrigated public open space and assist infrastructure management (eg dust suppression/road construction); and
- potentially provide recycled water to private businesses where appropriate.
Further information on this project may be obtained by contacting the Mid Murray Council directly on 08 8569 0100.
The Strengthening Basin Communities program is funded by the Australian Government's Water for the Future initiative.
