The Sunraysia Modernisation Project 2 (SMP2) project will focus on expanding horticulture on the edges of Merbein and Red Cliffs on a smaller scale than the large-scale expansion first mooted late last year.

With an estimated capital cost of $6 million, to be jointly funded by developers and investors, SMP2 would allow LMW to deliver an extra 25 gigalitres of water each year.
