An Expression of Interest is called for eligible bores to be further assessed and prioritised for capping and piping infrastructure works. The funding is to be directed to improved water security and drought resilience in the Great Artesian Basin.
From July 1, 2019 a new four year program has commenced, aimed at supporting NSW GAB landholders in improving water security and drought resilience. The program is aiming to achieve $26M of investment from NSW and Commonwealth governments.
Landholders with Great Artesian Basin bores that have uncontrolled flow or are failing and were constructed prior to 1965 can apply for efficient piped water supply systems for improved drought resilience and water security. Applications close 27 March 2020.
