About the Project
The On-Farm Water Management Project will help farmers reduce the impact of drought by preparing and implementing an on-farm water management plan – a plan that determines water needs (stock and domestic) and the capacity to meet these needs through storage (dams, tanks, waterways).
Landholders will then be able to undertake proven on-farm design and actions to ensure they have adequate water in the right places across the farm (through storage and reticulation via pipes and troughs).
Farm Water Management Planning (FWMP) will be developed at workshops and subsequent 1:1 (or small group) follow-up sessions to finalise the plans. Field days at 10 demonstration sites establishments across the region will provide clear examples of proven design options and tangible evidence of the benefits of completing a FWMP.
Western Murray Land Improvement Group are looking for interested landholders who would like to become an established demonstration site for farm water management best practice in our catchment area. Demonstration sites can be a waterway or dam on the property.
Would you be interested in your farm being a demonstration site for the project?
