Dam leg­is­la­tion

Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL UPDATE -

QUEENS­LAND Farm­ers Fed­er­a­tion made a pre­sen­ta­tion to the State De­vel­op­ment, In­fra­struc­ture and In­dus­try Com­mit­tee of State Par­lia­ment this week on draft leg­is­la­tion in im­ple­ment­ing rec­om­men­da­tions of the Flood Com­mis­sion of In­quiry.

QFF raised ques­tions about re­quire­ments for farm dam own­ers to pre­pare emer­gency ac­tion plans to deal with the fail­ure of these struc­tures. The sub­mis­sion wel­comed the changes to the cri­te­ria to en­sure rel­a­tively small farm dams will no longer be re­quired to con­duct as­sess­ments.

Re­moval of cer­tain un­nec­es­sary reg­u­la­tory re­quire­ments for small non-ur­ban wa­ter providers was also sup­ported.
