Water security discussions

Water security discussions

Council has also recently received $2.25million from the Safe and Secure Water Program that is for the strengthening of Winburndale Dam wall, with construction work already commenced.Council has also proposed a short-term solution to the State Government to purchase a water allocation from the Oberon Dam and Fish River Scheme to provide an additional water source for the town supply over this summer to help preserve the Chifley Dam supply for as long as possible. Mayor Cr Bobby Bourke said council has today received advice that this water purchase will not be supported by the State Government as the water from Oberon Dam and the Fish River scheme is unlikely to have a supply surplus that could be made available to Bathurst.“Council has been advised that this water wouldbe required to meet the critical supply needs for other customers including the Blue Mountains.”“The Fish River Scheme option was just one of Council’s suite of water security options and while it would have given Council access to additional water for this summer, our precautionary approach with the early introduction of water restrictions has helped keep Chifley Dam at more than 46% capacity going into the warmer weather,” Cr Bourke said.“Extreme water restrictions, which start on 14 October 2019 will also assist in reducing average daily consumption and preserving what water is available in Chifley for as long as possible.“This gives Council time to continue progressing our medium-term plans to design and build a storm water harvesting system and a pipeline from Winburndale Dam. “Council is working closely with local MP Paul Tooleon these issues and he has assisted with securing another meeting with the Minister for Water Melinda Pavey later this month to continue our discussions with the State Government regarding water security.

Council leading the ‘Shop Local’ Charge - With Love Local Gift Card to hit the Plains

“We are fortunate to have many great operators in our retail sector who provide an unparalleled range of products and services to our locals, however the drought has invariably taken its toll on their businesses. “The program is being run at zero cost to businesses including participating store setup, advertising and promotional support all of which is covered by Council.” Mrs Pearse explained that the program also provides an opportunity for friends and family from outside of the Shire to support our drought-affected community, with the cards available to be purchased online and shipped to the recipient. “These cards provide a means of bringing a vital injection of potentially new funds into the local economy.” To participate in the program, businesses must have a functioning EFTPOS facility and offer some kind of retail product or service.
