The Narromine Scheme History Book

The Narromine Trangie Irrigation Committee held its Inaugural Meeting in 1965 with 150 prospective members .

This scheme was the Brainchild of B.F Crawford, H.V Drew, A.J Heywood, H.R Shepherd and J Piggott. The organisers of this meeting felt it was time to get the Landholders together and make an application to the Government to be considered as recipients of water from Burrendong Dam.


Construction of channels commenced in February 1970 and pumps were installed in July. Irrigators began receiving water in February 1971.

The Narromine Trangie Irrigation Scheme is located on the Western side of the Mitchell Highway between the towns of Trangie and Narromine and pumps water from the Macquarie River.
