Are you interested in participating in the Northern Adelaide Irrigation Scheme (NAIS)?
The Northern Adelaide Irrigation Scheme (NAIS) is a Government Initiative that will deliver up to 12 GL of reclaimed water suitable for commercial food production to the agri-food precinct of the Northern Adelaide Plains, to help meet the current and future food demand of national and international export markets. It is expected to attract $1.1 billion in private investment, representing 300 hectares of horticulture, and a further 2,700 hectares of advanced agri-food production.
The Scheme offers a once in a generation opportunity for agribusinesses to secure a long-term supply of reliable, climate independent water which is not subject to drought-related restrictions or events that occur in river-based irrigation systems. The water delivered by the Scheme will be delivered through a pipeline and distribution network and suitable for horticulture, nurseries, floriculture, fruit and nut orchards, table and wine grapes, high-value broad-acre cropping, poultry, animal husbandry, and aquaculture. The project is on track to deliver its first water to customers by 2020.
