Submission regarding the Food Bowl Modernisation Project

This Business Council of Australia submission notes the importance of the Victorian Government’s Food Bowl Modernisation Project in terms of reviewing, rationalising and modernising irrigation.

The project has the potential to highlight the economic and environmental benefits of improving irrigation infrastructure. It includes the long-term health of ground and surface water systems as part of the overall aims of the project and formalises the sharing of water savings with the environment.

A major potential benefit of this proposal will be the interconnecting of systems to provide greater reliability in supply.
