Local Government NSW (LGNSW) Water Management Conference.

Published on Saturday, February 1, 2020

Local Government NSW (LGNSW) Water Management Conference.

15 - 17 July 2020

Event date: 7/15/2020 - 7/17/2020 Export event

In a time of unprecedented drought across NSW, Narrabri Shire Council in North West NSW is set to host hundreds of local council delegates from across the country at the annual Local Government NSW (LGNSW) Water Management Conference.

The popular annual state event attracts local government councillors and general managers, water managers and professionals, policy makers from government agencies and key industry stakeholders from NSW and interstate. It will be held from 15 – 17 July 2020.

LGNSW President Linda Scott said this conference has never been more relevant for councils, and their water utilities, given that 100 per cent of NSW is either in drought, drought affected, or experiencing intense drought.

“There has never been a more important time for council leadership in the management of our precious water supplies,” Clr Scott said.

“As our climate changes, our focus on the management of water will increase.

“Narrabri is a major agricultural hub in North-West NSW, and a prime location for the LGNSW Water Management Conference, which will focus on water issues particularly in regional and rural areas.”

The Mayor of Narrabri Shire Council Cathy Redding said the Council was very excited to host this year’s conference at the Crossing Theatre, against the backdrop of the Nandewar Ranges and on the banks of the Namoi River.

“We’re looking forward to showcasing the region’s innovative water infrastructure and water security measures,” Clr Redding said.

“For example, delegates can look forward to a tour of Baan Baa and learn about the innovative Baan Baa Water project which is vital water infrastructure supplying secure, potable water to the village, for the first time.

“Importantly, this infrastructure has not only increased the liveability of Baan Baa, it has improved safety during bushfire threats and has removed the added expense of having water delivered in dry times. It is also utilising solar technology to run pumps and decrease ongoing running costs for Council.”

Narrabri is around six hours drive from Sydney and Brisbane, with daily air services flying direct to Narrabri from Sydney and Brisbane and car hire available at the airport.

The region is renowned for wheat and cotton, prime lamb and juicy beef, olives, wine, honey and pasta made from locally-grown durum wheat.

The conference program is still being finalised and will be available at www.lgnsw.org.au/waterconference.
