Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area Renewal Alliance

Murrumbidgee Irrigation Alliance, NSW

John Holland, as part of the MIA Renewal Alliance (MIARA), is undertaking a modernisation program for off-farm and on-farm water delivery infrastructure within the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area (MIA).

The MIA Renewal Alliance was set up to plan, design and deliver modernisation projects throughout the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area, and to provide an automated delivery system in order to improve water access and efficiency.

The first two major projects to be completed by the Alliance include the Hanwood Modernisation Project, and the Lake Wyangan Modernisation Project, which includes the upgrades to existing lined sections of the Lake View Branch Canal (LVBC),  gravity piping of southern area laterals, channel automation and replacement of dethridge meter outlets.
