Water Security for Regions Program
Under the Water Security for Regions Program, the NSW Government allocated $366 million of Restart NSW funding to help regional communities improve water security and prepare for further drought conditions.
Projects funded under the Program included dam augmentation, pipeline and bore works, and water efficiency mechanisms, with the aim of helping farmers and regional industries deal with drier conditions.
The administration of funding for the Water Security for Regions Program is managed by Infrastructure NSW, with the department providing technical advice.
Following on from the Water Security for Regions Program, and in recognition of the ongoing need faced by Local Water Utilities in regional areas, the NSW government announced the Safe and Secure Water Program in 2017.
