Fairbairn Irrigation Network’s vision

The Board’s vision for FIN is a locally owned entity, working with irrigators to create sustainable water access solutions for the Emerald Irrigation Scheme. Its core business principles are outlined below.

  • Sustainability: The Board intends to take a long-term view of management of the business, to ensure the Irrigation Scheme remains financially viable and is able to support future generations of farmers in the district.
  • Local accountability: The Board, which currently includes several local irrigators, will be directly accountable to its customer Shareholders.
  • Efficient and cost-effective services: The Board’s goal is to provide cost effective water services to its customers through efficient and effective management of its physical and human resources.
  • Working with customers: The Board intends to work closely with customers, with the goal of building their trust and understanding their needs.
  • Revenue stays in the scheme: All revenue from distribution and drainage charges will be accounted for, and spent, in operating and maintaining the Irrigation Scheme. There will be no dividends or other distributions paid to Shareholders. Customers will be able to track the performance of FIN as a standalone entity.
