Winnaleah Irrigation Scheme - Operational

The Winnaleah Irrigation Scheme commenced operation in 1987, delivering 3,254 ML of irrigation rights to the district from the Cascade Dam. The augmentation adding the Frome Dam increases the scheme’s capacity by a further 3,700 ML over the summer irrigation season and also extends the scheme’s range. The augmented scheme commenced operation in October 2012. 

The scheme operates under self-management arrangements through an elected board of Winnaleah Irrigation Scheme Limited.
