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?

The forum is an initiative of Newstead 2021
