Wimmera Mallee Pipeline Fact Sheet

Many wetlands and dams across the region are important watering points for flora and fauna species. In the past, these water bodies have relied on water from the open channel system. To ensure these wetlands/dams can be protected and sustained into the future, the Wimmera Mallee Pipeline Project has allocated up to 1,000 megalitres (ML) from water savings to be used for off-stream wetlands.

Community members have the opportunity to nominate wetlands to receive some of this water. By filling out an Expression of Interest form and returning it to Grampians Wimmera Mallee Water, people can suggest the local wetlands they would like to see connected to the pipeline.
