Southern Riverina Irrigators
SRI is a peak lobbying organisation providing strong water advocacy for our membership base. SRI is committed to producing food and fibre through environmentally and economically sustainable practices within the footprint of Murray Irrigation Limited (the largest privately owned Australian water supplier) in the southern Riverina of NSW.
Highly productive, our region utilises water sourced from the NSW Murray above the Barmah Choke. Despite seasonal variabilities and poor water policy within our region, we continue to produce high quality agricultural products contributing an estimated $6billion annually to the Australian economy while providing 25,000 jobs.
Our key principles are:
• Supporting the right of our landholders to access irrigation.
• Delivering water reform to meet environmental, social and economic objectives.
• Water reform must be about outcomes and not volumes
