Future water for our region

Rous County Council is responsible for ensuring our community has a safe, sustainable and secure bulk water supply now, and into the future. Over the next 50 years, changes to climate and rainfall patterns are expected to mean that the region will receive less reliable rainfall. At the same time, water use is forecast to increase as the population grows.

In 2014, Rous County Council’s Future Water Strategy recommended three key actions be undertaken as part of securing a future water supply for Rous County Council’s region. The actions are near completion and the accompanying reports will be available to the public on finalisation.
