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 has the potential to increase the risk of wind erosion & dryland salinity.

as increased water supply costs are cut into farm budgets that may have been available to spend on land management related activities such as clay spreading, perennial pasture establishment & revegetation.


Please find links below that may assist you to calculate and plan your farm water requirements. You will also find links to information in regard to Council Planning Considerations and Regional Hydrogeology.
