New Waterpool director Paul Weller, from Lockington, is looking forward to the role and is interested in how the co-operative develops new water products.
‘‘I’ve grown up on an irrigation farm and our family farm relies on irrigation,’’ Mr Weller said.
He said he was keen to support the development of water products which would encourage agriculture and help retain water in the region.
Mr Weller, a former Victorian MP, said he hoped his networks and experience would be of advantage to the board.
Chairman Peter Fitzgerald is a farmer, former Goulburn-Murray Water director and water services committee member, former Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority director and a former UDV councillor.
