Marne Saunders water resource community consultation sessions

Community consultations

In February this year, a forum was held in Cambrai in response to the recent series of dry years which have reduced water resources and dependent ecosystems in the Marne Saunders catchment.

As a follow up to this forum, the Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board is holding two meetings to continue the discussion among catchment water users.

Both meetings will include:

  • A presentation from the landscape board which will address outstanding questions from February’s water forum, and present information about the water policy options available.
  • An opportunity for the community to suggest actions to address declining water resources.

One meeting will be held for water licensees on Tuesday 1 November, and a second for non-licensees on Thursday 3 November.

Both sessions will be held at the Mount Pleasant Soldiers Memorial Hall from
6 pm – 9 pm, and include a free, light supper.
