The days of DAFWA having the bulk of GRDC
funding in WA are long gone, they can't even guarantee a long term funding framework.
We have significant GRDC investment in this State ( AHRI, CCDM etc - non DAFWA) which benefits all GRDC levy payers.
When DAFWA shows some true leadership and investment in capacity they then may be deemed to be a suitable investment partner.

The wire is corroding and needs major work to be effective
