Newstead Community Centre Tuesday 19th May (7 for a 7.30pm start)


 


The forum will consider issues such as:


 


·                    What is the current state of water supply and demand in Central Victoria?


·                    What do global warming scenarios predict for future water availability?


·                    How are our water utilities planning for a future where demand is increasing and supply threatened by drought and climate change?


·                    What are the implications for maintaining the health of water dependent ecosystems such as our precious Loddon River?


·                    What is happening to our local aquifers and current resources of groundwater?


·                    What can we do as a community to explore sustainable water options for farming, rivers and people?


 


RSVP via email to geoff.park@nccma.vic.gov.au or 54762593



The forum is an initiative of Newstead 2021
