Vale Colin Thomson

Col served the irrigation industry and his community, passionately advocating for their best interests.

Col worked tirelessly from the 1980’s to 2014 representing NSW Murray high security irrigators.

In 1995 Western Murray Irrigation Ltd was formed as a result of the NSW Government’s privatisation process and Col became a founding Director, serving on the Board until his retirement in 2014.

Col was also a foundation member of the NSW South West Water Users, Chair of the NSW Irrigators Council (1998-2011) and Chair of the National Irrigators Council (2008-2012), amongst many other positions.

In 2015 Col was awarded an Order of Australia medal (OAM) for services to environmental water management and the community.

Western Murray Irrigation would like to pay tribute to Col Thomson’s leadership and his unwavering dedication to his irrigation community.

Our condolences to Marg and family.
