Harvey Water is a customer service business, delivering water to cooperative members, small private irrigators and industrial users. Innovative solutions have been implemented to provide access to water based on efficient and sustainable irrigation techniques.
Water is supplied via a gravity fed pipe and channel system, using some 2,000 individual supply points, sourcing water from seven dams along the Darling Scarp from Waroona in the north to Wellington Dam near Collie in the south. The system spans over 112,000 hectares, with more than 450km of pipelines and 250km of channels.
The water supplied is non-potable, or not suitable for household drinking and consumption. It is however, ideal for providing prime dairy and beef cattle grazing pastures, horticultural irrigation and water for industrial use. The regional economic benefits are enormous, with an estimated $100M in gross value-added production from agriculture/horticulture from the water supplied.
Harvey Water is currently working towards replacing the channel system for new pipelines, leading to water efficiency savings of approximately 17GL of water per year due to water not being lost through seepage and evaporation.
