The Scottsdale Irrigation Scheme (SIS) is designed to deliver 8,600 ML of high-reliability summer irrigation water to the areas of Scottsdale, Springfield, Bridport and Waterhouse. Surplus winter flows would be stored in the proposed Camden Rivulet Dam and distributed by a 73km network of underground pipelines and three local waterways: the Great Forester and Brid Rivers and Hurst Creek. The scheme will generate electricity through a mini-hydro power station at South Springfield.
