The Proposed Irrigation scheme
The Southern Forest Irrigation Scheme is an agricultural irrigation scheme being developed in the Manjimup-Pemberton area in south west Western Australia.
The proposed scheme will comprise a 15 GL dam located on Record Brook and a pipeline distribution network that will supply water to irrigators who have purchased a water entitlement for the scheme.
Water for the scheme will be of high quality and reliability and will be supplied from peak flows in the Donnelly River. The scheme will be designed to ensure that environmental flows within the catchment are retained.
The scheme will be owned and operated by the Southern Forests Irrigation Co-operative Ltd and all scheme water users will be members of the Co-operative.
