Efficiency measure projects in South Australia

Efficiency measure projects in South Australia

Efficiency measures projects (also known as efficiency measures) support more water recovery through improving water use efficiency, such as replacing or upgrading on-farm irrigation. These projects need to have no adverse socio-economic impacts on Basin communities and industries.

The first efficiency measure project in South Australia, the Commonwealth On-Farm Further Irrigation Efficiency (COFFIE) program, is currently in its first (pilot) phase.

Through this project, the Australian Government provides funding for irrigation infrastructure upgrades and other on-farm water efficiency activities, in return for the water savings transferred from irrigators to the Australian Government.

The delivery partner for this pilot in South Australia is the South Australian Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resources Management Board.

Other efficiency projects in South Australia are currently being investigated
