  7. Rosemary our thoughts are with you at this time. We have lost a good friend, a great citizen and a fantastic and gifted engineer. Malcolm, where others feared to tread you made the greatest contribution to highland irrigation efficiency within the pumped irrigation districts following the Chaffey era.
    As CEO, Malcolm introduced ‘Water on Order’ giving irrigators access to water 24/7 365 days a year, first to irrigators of the Renmark Irrigation Trust and later to irrigators of the First Mildura Irrigation Trust.
    This was also later adopted by the SR&WSC pumped districts of Victoria. This has underpinned the irrigation efficiency of the regions and has had huge beneficial environmental impacts on salinity and drainage in the Murray Valley.
    The broader community will be ever grateful for Malcolm’s innovative accomplishments.

  12. On our father’s side of the family we had two Uncle Grahams and two Uncle Malcolms. Only one was a Gallasch.
    May he rest in peace.

  13. Malcolm was a great engineer, a great manager and above all a great person. Staff at the FMIT felt that we worked with Malcolm rather than for him
    He always encouraged us to discuss alternative ideas to improve the performance of the Trust and the water supply system to the growers.
    He will be sadly missed by all members of the water industry and by the community in general
