South Australian River Murray Sustainability-Irrigation Industry Improvement Program (SARMS 3IP)
The South Australian River Murray Sustainability Program (SARMS) will build strong and sustainable irrigation communities and help to secure water resources needed for a healthy environment and a prosperous state.
SARMS is a $265 million funding package resulting from collaborative efforts between the Australian and South Australian Governments and the water industry. It comprises two areas of investment: the Irrigation Industry Improvement Program (SARMS-3IP) and a suite of regional development, research and innovation programs that includes the redevelopment of the Loxton Research Centre.
SARMS will be delivered by the South Australian Government and has been designed to achieve the outcomes sought by the Water Industry Alliance in their original River Murray Improvement Program proposal. For further information on SARMS-3IP, head to the PIRSA website .
