The Robinvale Irrigation System commenced operation in 1947 to supply water pumped from the River Murray to the farming properties of the Robinvale Irrigation District.
Due to the age of the existing infrastructure and the changes that have occurred in the irrigation industry since the Robinvale Irrigation System’s inception, there has been a gradual deterioration in the condition and serviceability of the system. Consequently, Lower Murray Water (LMW) is implementing a replacement plan that comprises construction of a new pumping and piped distribution system that delivers water to the system’s irrigated properties at a much higher pressure than that provided by the existing infrastructure, enabling direct irrigation without the need for on-farm pumping. The contract to construct the pumping station was awarded to Fulton Hogan and Gertzel Engineering Surveyors are providing surveying services for the project.
