Background to Barossa Infrastructure Ltd (BIL)

Barossa Infrastructure Ltd (BIL) is an unlisted public company which supplies 7,000 to 8,000 Megalitres per annum of supplementary irrigation water to viticulture in the Barossa Valley.

SA Water provides the connection to the Warren Reservoir, supplemented with water supplied via the Mannum Adelaide Pipeline and Warren Transfer Main, from the River Murray.

SA Water is provided with irrigation water rights sourced from the River Murray for the amount of water supplied to Barossa Infrastructure.

This water comes from Water Access Entitlements either purchased or in the form of long term leases and annual Water Allocations purchased on the market.


Barossa Infrastructure Ltd (BIL)

BIL’s customers are the shareholders in proportion to their contracted volume. The scheme cost in 2000 was approximately $30 million, funded about 1/3 by shares and 2/3 by a long term bank loan. Current debt is about $2.8 million.

In addition to usage charges, shown on the reports page, customers pay an annual infrastructure levy.

There was no Government funding although considerable assistance was provided in negotiation of the necessary permits for the scheme.
