Water for the Environment

On 20 April 2016 the Renmark Irrigation Trust became the first irrigation body in Australia to enter a partnership with the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder (CEWH) to return water to parts of the environment that have suffered long term degradation due to past irrigation practices.

In the 5 years up to June 2022 the Trust has delivered over 2 GL to twelve sites, inundating 120 hectares.

The regeneration of sections of floodplains also involves partnerships with Renmark Paringa Council, the Murray and Riverland Landscape Board, Department of Environment and Water and local landholders.

“… the RIT is the first irrigation settlement in Australia, one of the first to be completely piped, and the first trust to partner with the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder to deliver environmental water, they have long demonstrated the innovation and courage required to be world’s best”
