NY03038 - Past, Current and Planned Activity by Water Authorities and Others

In the last 2 to 3 years there has been much pressure on consumers to reduce domestic water use in Perth and Sydney as well as in regional areas such as the Gold Coast, Geelong, the Eyre Peninsula and far north coast of NSW. Most of this pressure has been as a result of prolonged drought causing storages to fall to the point where restrictions have had to be implemented. A number of recommendations have been made in this report on the assumptions that the nursery industry will adopt the latter option.
