Economic Development

As a provider of a range of essential and innovative services across central Gippsland, we are a key facilitator of industry activity in the region. We’re committed to expanding our collaboration with business and government to attract new investment and support the expansion of existing industries.

As the entitlement holder of significant quantities of raw water, we’re keen to maximise the regional and social benefits of the resources we have available, particularly from an economic development perspective.
