Southern Forest Irrigation Scheme

Proposal description: 

The Southern Forest Irrigation Scheme proposal involves taking water from the Donnelly River to irrigate land for horticultural and agricultural production in the southern forests region around Manjimup and Pemberton.

The proposal is to construct and operate a water offtake (pump station) adjacent to the Donnelly River, a reservoir on Record Brook (a tributary of the Donnelly River), two header dams and a network of distribution water pipelines and associated infrastructure to supply water to agricultural properties.
