The South West Loddon Pipeline Project is now complete. Connecting to the pipeline will secure a reliable water supply for your property. There are many benefits of having a piped supply, from better quality water for bathing and washing to security for firefighting or enterprise opportunities. Read below some case studies about how piped water has benefited landholders in our community.
What to do
Landowners along the South West Loddon Pipeline route can still apply to connect to the pipeline system.
If you're interested in connecting:

Rural landholders within the project boundary shown on the map below may be eligible to connect to the pipeline.
Pipeline paves the way for growth
Dubbed the ‘best development for the region since electricity’, the pipeline provides a secure reticulated water supply to 1500 rural properties in areas surrounding Inglewood, Newbridge, St Arnaud and Wedderburn.
Murphy’s Creek farmer Deb Hancock said the pipeline had given their farm a future for their children, Campbell and Georgia.
Buying back time
The South West Loddon Pipeline has provided a secure, readily available water supply for John and Ann Leach who run 5000 sheep with their son John at Rheola, near Bridgewater in Central Victoria. It has given them given back precious time to focus their attention on other demands around their Merino Sheep farming enterprise.
GWMWater and Coliban Water come together to deliver for customers
More than 3000 Coliban Water urban customers will benefit from the completion of the South West Loddon Pipeline.
Coliban Water contributed $2.7 million to the $89.9-million project; led by GWMWater. Approximately 1170 kilometres of pipeline will provide a raw water supply to properties across 2900 square kilometres in both GWMWater and Coliban Water service areas.
A real time saver
The South West Loddon Pipeline has been a boon for Des and Frances Lanyon, providing secure reliable supplies of clean water to both house and farm, and reducing the time and labour spent carting water when dams or other supplies run low.
