Ord River Irrigation Area

The Ord River Irrigation Area (ORIA) is one of the four nodes in the Water Security for Northern Australia program. The ORIA supports a broad array of agriculture including melons, mangos, sandalwood, and broad acre cropping. The ORIA is presently in Stage 2 of development, with farms to the east of Kununurra, towards the NT border, with Stage 3 farms proposed for the NT. Much of the project focuses on the Keep River catchment, which is habitat to EPBC listed species, including sawfish. Two projects seek to ensure that surface water quality is maintained to protect these important species and a third seeks to understand stakeholder views on how water is valued in the system, and how wáter could be managed during dry years.
