Rural Water Awards

The 2018 Rural Water Awards recognise Victorian rural water licence holders who are doing great things with water.

This could be licence holders who have used new or innovative water technology, introduced projects to bring about water savings or increased their productivity through changed water practices.

The awards are offered through water corporations that manage rural water, including Coliban Water, in partnership with VicWater, Victorian Farmers Federation and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.


> Awards categories

The awards are available in five categories:

  • Irrigation district water users drawing water from a rural supply system such as channels or pipelines.
  • Groundwater users (bores)
  • Surface water users diverting water from a waterway or dam.
  • Community and education groups that draw water from any of the above water sources.
  • Farm to Plate, where sites manage the whole supply chain; from the production of raw produce all the way through to the retail market.

Cash prizes are available in each of the categories at regional level and at a state level.

Nominations open Monday 2 July 2018 and close 5pm Friday 31 August 2018.
