The sheer number and complexity of the many pipelines that cart water around this state is mind-boggling.
And there's always more work to be done.
Yesterday, I said we'd investigate extending the Wimmera Mallee Pipeline so it can reach more than 300,000 hectares currently left off the grid.
That's an area four times the size of Singapore.
And today, we announced works to connect 260 farms and hundreds more properties in Loddon Shire to the water grid.
We will build an array of pipelines that – laid end to end – would almost be as long as New Zealand.
Water is an asset.
Our whole state deserves to share it.
