Clare Valley growers access Murray River for irrigation after years of lobbying

Clare Valley wine grape growers have struck a deal with SA Water which will allow them access to irrigation water from the River Murray. The deal is the result of six years of lobbying and will allow grape growers a 400 megalitre allocation of water a year. Over 50 irrigators across the Clare Valley have signed up to the scheme with the region’s biggest producers taking up the bulk of the available allocation.
