The Murray Valley Water Services Committee represents irrigation customers in the region, including from Nathalia, Numurkah and Cobram. It is bounded by Barmah in the west, Strathmerton in the north, Cobram in the east, down to Katamatite and south to Wunghnu.
GMW’s Murray Valley customers primarily use water for domestic and stock purposes, horticulture, annual pasture and permanent pasture.
The Murray Valley WSC is chaired by Jason Andrew and consists of seven members in total.
The committee has continued to develop in 2015/16, welcoming two new members in Rodney McCracken and Iwan Van Den Berg, both who are large-scale dairy farmers with a good understanding about the importance of irrigation. The committee has also recently farewelled Jim McKeown, Max Baker and Barry Croke.
Over the past year, the committee has been involved in the Connections Project as well as aquatic weed management and desilting in channels and associated winter works.
