Feds return for more water talks

By Alana Christensen

The Federal Department of Agriculture and Water Resources is set to return to the region next week, following complaints communities didn't receive enough notice about water efficiency project consultations.

The department originally traveled to the region late last month but will return at the insistence of the community and Federal Agriculture Minister David Littleproud.

The consultation period for additional criteria for efficiency measures has been extended to Friday,  November 23.

A meeting will be held at 12pm on Thursday, November 15 at the Swan Hill Resort and at the Rochester Golf Club at 12pm on Friday, November 16.

A list of current public meeting dates and locations, online feedback options and details regarding an online consultation session are available at: https://haveyoursay.agriculture.gov.au/water-efficiency
