Multiple regions across New South Wales will share $40 million for new water infrastructure projects to increase water storage and help communities better cope with climate change.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Barnaby Joyce said the water infrastructure projects are co-funded under the Australian Government’s National Water Grid Connections funding pathway, through the $3.5 billion National Water Grid Fund.
“Connections recognises that small-scale infrastructure projects individually may make localised improvements to water outcomes, while collectively they can make nationally significant contributions to the National Water Grid,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.
