Part of Murray Irrigation's PIIOP rollout involves extensive and
targeted consultation to enable customer input to determine the
capacity, location and number of outlets to our customers'
landholdings, as well as identify any opportunities to rationalise
the number of outlets or other infrastructure to help reduce our
capital and maintenance costs.
The customer consultation program operates under criteria which
was developed considering the company's diverse customer base,
number of outlets, water use history and availability of funds.
Currently the team is consulting to the west of Deniliquin.
At the end of June 2015, landholdings which account for nearly
60 percent of Murray Irrigation's outlets, had been consulted
within the consultation program, on target for completion by August
The outlet consultation process for PIIOP was revised in January
2014. Customers are now issued with a 'Notice of Assessment'
instead of a 'Formal Agreement' following the conclusion of
consultation with our staff. This revised process will streamline
the consultation process and is necessary given the limited
timeframe to implement works under the PIIOP Funding Agreement with
