WESTERN Australia’s regional and rural water users will come together in December to develop a strategic response to the Gallop Government’s State Water Strategy.
Representatives from seven key organisations resolved at the WAFarmers Water Forum in Busselton that a Regional & Rural Water Summit was needed to bring the issues relevant to those living in these areas to the attention of the Government.
The Busselton Water Forum was an outstanding example of the potential impact a united voice can have, when political and commercial differences are put aside and we all focus on the problem of water resource security as it stands.
A summit in December will provide the Gallop Government with the critical industry input from agricultural and rural water users that was not given full consideration in the lead up to and at the State Water Symposium last year.
