The Coalition Government is investing $25 million for the Northern Murray-Darling Basin Metering Program that will bolster water compliance and give communities access to faster and more accurate water data.
The Coalition Government today introduced a Bill to establish the Inspector–General of Water Compliance - a strong and independent regulator to monitor and oversee water compliance in Australia’s largest water resource, the Murray–Darling Basin.
The Morrison-McCormack Government will maximise long-term economic opportunities and job creation to secure Australia’s recovery, by expanding the nation’s resources sector and prioritising development of northern Australia.
Farmers impacted by drought will be given another 12 months to apply for funding from the On-farm Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate Scheme (OFEWIRS) to help them build much needed infrastructure to make their properties drought resilient.
The Coalition Government has approved 10 environmental projects in New South Wales and Queensland for funding through the Northern Basin Toolkit that will create jobs in Basin communities and improve the health of northern rivers.
