Ord Irrigation Cooperative provides water management services to farms in Stage 1 of the Ord River Irrigation Area. We maintain irrigation and drainage infrastructure, and provide services to customers, who include farmers and the general public.
Lake Argyle, together with Lake Kununurra, is part of the Ord River Irrigation Scheme. Water is diverted from Lake Kununurra and is gravity fed through a series of open channels to farms in Ord Stage 1, covering 15,150 hectares of agricultural land. The water is used to grow a variety of agricultural crops including mango, citrus, watermelon, rockmelon, pumpkin, chickpea, sandalwood and chia.
