TROPICAL Forestry Services Ltd has developed the first ever water recycling project as part of the Ord River Irrigation Area at Kununurra in the east Kimberley region of Western Australia. The recycling facility on TFS’s Indian sandalwood plantations was officially opened last week by state Agriculture Minister Kim Chance. The project was completed in conjunction with the Ord Irrigation Cooperative, which provided infrastructure and technical support, and the National Action Plan for Salinity and Water Quality, which provided capital works funding. TFS chairman Frank Wilson said the recycling facility would provide significant environmental benefits to the river systems and wetlands in the area, and he hoped other primary producers on the Ord River Irrigation Area would install similar facilities.
