Murrumbidgee Irrigation established the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area Renewal Alliance to carry out innovative infrastructure upgrades that would improve the existing irrigation delivery system, increase agricultural productivity, create water savings, and ultimately ensure the future viability of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area.
The first two major projects to be completed by the Alliance include the Hanwood Modernisation Project and Lake Wyangan Modernisation Project, which include the upgrades to existing lined sections of the Lake View Branch Canal (LVBC), gravity piping of southern area laterals, channel automation and associated works.
