 Water Security in the Coorong Tatiara Local Action Plan Area

The Coorong Tatiara Local Action Plan has taken an interest in the impact of increased mains water costs on our local farm businesses. We are concerned about the flow on effects of this increase in costs to livestock producers, such as the potential change in land use on our fragile soils from perennial pastures to cropping. This could potentially increase the risk of wind erosion & dryland salinity. We believe the increased production costs are cutting into the farm budget available to spend on land management related activities such as clay spreading, perennial pasture establishment & revegetation.
