MDBP Help Stop Further Water Buy Backs

MDBP Water Buy Back image.jpg

Government water reform has reduced the amount of water available in the Goulburn Murray irrigation district, which includes Moira Shire, with previous water buy backs reducing water usage by 50% and irrigated agriculture jobs by 40%.

The Commonwealth Government is now considering intervening again and buying more water from landowners.

Any further buy backs within the Moira Shire will reduce the long term viability of our irrigation industries and our irrigation infrastructure managed by Goulburn Murray Water.

Consultation closed on July 3, but you can still submit your idea. However it cannot be guaranteed that your idea will be received in time to incorporate into the "What we heard" report.


The "What we heard" report will be released in August 2023.
