Western Times - - NEWS -

New laws passed by the State Gov­ern­ment will al­low the tem­po­rary re­lease of wa­ter re­served for fu­ture dams and weirs to be used by farm­ers. Queens­land Farm­ers’ Fed­er­a­tion pres­i­dent Stu­art Ar­mitage wel­comed the de­ci­sion to give ac­cess to un­used wa­ter, and said it had been a long time com­ing. “QFF has long ad­vo­cated for Queens­land’s strate­gic wa­ter re­serves to be made avail­able to farm­ers and al­low them to cap­i­talise on the ex­ist­ing in­fras­truc­ture op­por­tu­ni­ties,” he said.
