How we deliver
Murray Irrigation is Australia’s largest private irrigation and environmental water delivery company. We deliver water to customers through 3,000km of energy efficient, gravity-fed earthen channels.
Customers place water orders four days in advance – the time it takes water in our main storage, Hume Dam, to travel to our diversion point from the Murray River at Lake Mulwala. The company uses its Government-issued ‘Conveyance Licence’ to fill up its channel system. Customer orders are effectively parked and delivered on top of this conveyance water.
