The Government is delivering funding of $45.6 million to get capital works underway on the Northern Adelaide Irrigation Scheme.
This project will deliver more affordable and secure water supplies to farmers in the region, expanding irrigated agriculture and supporting high-tech greenhouse horticulture.
This is another demonstration of this Government getting on with the business of building the water infrastructure of the future, to support rural and regional growth and prosperity.
The Northern Adelaide Irrigation Scheme is expected to start delivering water to irrigators by early 2019.
