Posted July 01, 2018 04:10:03 It’s been a busy week for Australia’s rivers.
More than two million people have already crossed the border and the country is bracing for another record high rainfall.
What is the water supply like for those living downstream?
As the government braces for another huge rain event, it has begun to re-examine the long-standing debate over the water infrastructure of the country.
What’s been the response from the Government?
The water infrastructure in Australia is one of the most complex in the world, and there are many factors that influence the quality and resilience of the system.
While the response has been slow and measured, there are some encouraging signs.
In particular, the Department of Water and Infrastructure (DWI) has acknowledged that there are issues with water management and a review into the design and operation of the national system is underway.
What has been the main focus of the Government’s review?
As part of its review, the Government has looked at the design of the water management system for the country, and what the impacts of this have been.
What does the review cover?
The review is focusing on the design, construction and operation, as well as the water treatment, treatment and reuse of the existing water systems.
It looks at water management across a range of regions and is expected to recommend that water be treated differently in some areas and re-treated in others.
The review also looks at the environmental impact of the proposed water system and the potential impacts on communities.
The focus is on the impact of these changes on people living downstream, with the Government also looking at the effects of the changes on fish stocks and the ability of fish populations to recover from impacts of the current water system.
What impact will the review have on water supply in the future?
The Government has already begun to examine how to improve the current system and will work with the water community and other stakeholders to determine the best ways to implement its recommendations.
What do you think of the government’s water conservation strategy?
We think the plan is good.
The plan is not perfect and there will be some areas where water use will change, but that’s where it’s at.
I think the system is pretty good and I think it’s got a lot of the things that people are saying that we need to do, and it’s certainly getting the job done.
