The 2,000 ML scheme being developed would pump water from the Swan River in periods of higher river flows and store it in a dam adjacent to the river, close to the township of Cranbrook on the Melrose property. This stored water would then be delivered to participating landholders through a delivery network of pipes during the summer irrigation season. The irrigation water delivered would be at a surety level of greater than 95 per cent. The irrigation season will nominally run from 1 September to January 31 each year.
