Do You Qualify for a Farm Water Rebate?

Agriculture, Water Tanks, Livestock Troughs

 

If you are a WA farmer in dryland an agriculture zone receiving less than 600mm average rainfall could be eligible to receive a generous farm water rebate for developing and improving your on-farm water supplies. This is thanks to the $4.4 million Watering WA rebates scheme which started in October 1st.


Firstly your farm must be in the WA dryland agriculture zone as seen below:

If you meet the eligibility criteria for the Farm Water Supply Planning Scheme (FWSPS) you are in line to get a rebate towards the cost of a farm water auditor visiting your farm to carry out an audit.

After the audit and once your on-farm water supply improvement works have been carried out you could also then claim on the Farm Water Rebate Scheme (FWRS)
