You may have heard in the media in recent days that the Myalup Wellington Project is being reconsidered by the State Government.
As Members will be aware, the Cooperative has been a strong advocate for this project for many years – from inception through to the nomination of a proponent in Collie Water.
Particularly since a grant funding announcement in 2018, we have shared Member frustration around the ongoing delays to commencement of the project. Regardless, Harvey Water welcomes the State Government’s position of remaining committed to finding a solution to manage the salinity of the Wellington Dam, which also remains a primary focus of Harvey Water.
We have 220 Members directly impacted in the CRID and will work with Government towards retaining project funding and seeing the project benefits come to fruition.
As CRID Members are aware, last year we started gathering information to allow a piped CRID to be designed as a means of assisting the project to move forward. We are progressing this design and it will provide an accurate budget estimate as to what an improved CRID system will cost. This budget estimate, combined with a better understanding of the possibilities associated with project funding will allow us to revert to the Members with a proposal.
We will post updates on the web site as information comes to hand. Please refer also to additional links and resources on this page.
If you have any questions, please contact the Harvey Water office on 9729 0100.
