FOL­LOW­ING the clo­sure of Cape York Sus­tain­able Fu­tures, Ru­ral De­vel­op­ment Aus­tralia Far North Queens­land and Tor­res Strait has en­tered into a con­tract with the Queens­land State Gov­ern­ment to de­liver fi­nal Mile­stones 4 and 5 (the draft and fi­nal strate­gic busi­ness case) of the Lake­land Ir­ri­gation Scheme. Once com­plete, the pro­ject will pro­vide a 195GL stor­age dam within the Palmer River, ir­ri­gation sys­tems, trans­porta­tion and power gen­er­a­tion to sup­port the ex­pan­sion of ir­ri­gated agri­cul­ture within the Lake­land Ir­ri­gation Area as well as hun­dreds of jobs for the re­gion.
