New Water Services Committee members appointed

Friday 3 August, 2012

The Board of Goulburn-Murray Water (G-MW) has appointed 5 new members and reappointed 19 members to its Water Service Committees (WSC) network which includes 108 customers from across G-MW's region.

G-MW Chairman, Lew Vale said G-MW has an extensive customer consultative committee network and each year a process is undertaken to appoint customer representatives to fill the positions vacated by members whose terms have come to an end.

"Our Water Services Committees are made up of customers with a broad range of experience and interests," Mr Vale added.

Our WSC network is made up of six Irrigation Area WSCs which advise G-MW on channel delivery, pumped supply and drainage services, pricing and operations.

There are also four Regional WSCs which advise G-MW on river and groundwater diversion services, pricing and operations and the integration of surface and groundwater management, two stock and domestic WSCs for Tungamah and Loddon Water Districts and a WSC for the Loch Garry Flood Protection District.
