Murrumbidgee Irrigation are one of the largest private irrigation companies in Australia serving over 3,093 landholdings that is owned by over 2,300 shareholder customers within an area of 378,911 hectares. The irrigation water and drainage services we provide have helped create a diverse and highly productive agricultural region known as the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area (MIA). The vibrant communities of the MIA offer a range of education, arts, entertainment, sports and recreational activities.
Our core business is delivery of water through an extensive integrated supply and drainage network. The MIA is one of the most diverse and productive regions in Australia, forming part of the Murray-Darling Basin and covering an area of 378,911 hectares of which up to 190,000 hectares is irrigated. The MIA is home to over 50,000 people with the majority of jobs tied inextricably to the water we supply to farms and industry.
Established in 1912 following the commissioning of Burrinjuck Dam in the Snowy Mountains, the MIA was conceived by the government of the day as a purpose-built scheme, designed to feed and provide employment opportunities for a growing nation. The original vision for the MIA is as important today as it was over 100 years ago. In 1999 the NSW Government relinquished ownership of the MIA (and Districts) and we now operate as an unlisted public company (limited by shares), owned by the irrigators we supply.
