South East Integration Project
Tranche Three — Phase Two

The South East Integration Project is part of the Future Irrigation Project, which will be used to develop the Tranche Three suite of schemes proposed by Tasmanian Irrigation

The South East Integration Project is being designed to secure a reliable water source, integrate the existing South East Stages One, Two and Three schemes, and service existing and additional demand around Richmond, Dulcot, Cambridge, Colebrook, Campania, Tea Tree, Orielton, Pawleena, Penna, Sorell, Forcett, Elderslie and Broadmarsh.

The existing schemes lack the capacity to cater for continued growth, and are further impacted by the ongoing availability issues and increased costs for current treated, non-potable water supply. The proposed scheme will increase reliability of supply and support significant growth to one of the driest areas in the State. Principal primary production focus is cherries, apples, salad vegetables, wine grapes, stone fruit, lucerne, walnuts and olives.
