We need more water infrastructure

Our communities are in the middle of a terrible drought, and water supplies are running low.

There are environmental groups that not only oppose building new dams, but want to take even more precious water away from our rural and regional communities. For too long inner-city bureaucrats and environmentalists stood in the way of building dams, which are widely considered to be one of the best ways to get through droughts on this dry continent.

Dams help to balance water delivery during times of drought. By building dams now, we can create much-needed jobs in drought-affected areas, while ensuring that when it does rain we can capture as much of that water as possible.

The Nationals in Government will cut through red and green tape and deliver critical water infrastructure projects, including new and expanded dam projects.
