Australia Sets Aside Millions For Water Transport To Drought-stricken Towns

SYDNEY NSW

Millions of Australian dollars have been set aside to transport supplies to parts of the country which have just six months worth of water left. Forty towns, all in the state of New South Wales (NSW), have been identified to have low supplies of water, ten of which have populations of more than 500. The water supplies for other communities in the state have been categorised as "high risk", with local government having already committed $2m (£1.1m) to local councils to move water.
