What are your questions about water infrastructure in NSW's rural valleys?

Forum is closed.

WaterNSW has developed a 20 Year Infrastructure Options Study document including some options to meet long‑term level of service objectives in regulated river water supply areas across NSW (excluding Greater Sydney). Our study is now public - go to Important Links to see a copy.

We are asking you to read this Options Study and ask any questions you may have through this forum. Post questions or like and comment on others below and we'll respond to them.

Please note we have extended the forum to close on Friday 31 August to provide our customers and community more time to submit their questions. We will consolidate feedback and provide you with responses before the end of the forum. 

We also encourage you to visit our website where you can find answers to some of your questions in our FAQs  (click here).

Why are we still subjected to disproven water flouridation? Just 5% of the world flouridates their water - with no difference between flouridated and non-flouridated regions in terms of tooth decay (where simple brushing and flossing is practiced).
99% of the western continental Europe has rejected, banned or stopped fluoridating their own water supplies due to health and legal concerns, as have Austria, Belgium, Finland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, The Netherlands, Hungary, Japan and Israel.
Meanwhile, Australia ignores this fact-based trend and continues to inexplicably further h2o flourida...

Living as we do in a rural area with no piped water and now in drought for 12 months we HAVE to conserve water (At $160 for 13.500 litres water is expensive!)
If city water was metered with a daily allowance for each person in a dwelling then the cost for any water used that day in excess of the allowance increased 4-fold, people would learn to conserve and use water wisely

The Murray Darling Basin and the Artesian Basin that is re charged from floodplain flows through the basin, is being systematically dismantled in favour of foreign interests, corporate greed and unethical management.
Given there is still no business case for the $480.000.000 pipeline that is deemed 'essential infrastructue' to supply water to Broken Hill from the Murray at Wentworth, how can WaterNSW expect the public to have confidence in any decision made?

Why would you not look at building Tillegra Dam?.. The studies, surveys designs have been done in the past.. and the costs and return on investment would be far better option.

I searched the Water NSW site for suggestions about water tanks but onlyfound composting toilets and septic systems. Some examples of water tanks for different houses, flats and properties would be great please.

Why is there not more publicity about saving water in every way - particularly in homes - throughout the community?

Could IPART establish prices for the consumption of water in proportion to the amount of reserve we have? Traditional supply and demand pricing - the higher the demand the higher the price - the scarcer the product the higher the price; pricing water this way we might be able to avoid the South African scenario (Cape Town) and keep the desalination plant in mothballs for ever.

Why not redesign lake cargelligo, lake curlew and sheet of water on the lower lachlan? Something similar to Lake Brewster with not only planning on better water quality and more storage but improvements of habitats for native flora and fauna with focus on tourism in the local area ie water sports, bird watching and culture tourism
