Huge surge in water demand

Huge surge in water demand
7 January 2013 - NSW State Water Corp

Extreme weather conditions are driving record irrigation demand, resulting in potentially the highest water delivery rates in more than a decade, State Water Corporation confirmed today.

State Water, which operates major dams in regional NSW, is operating at full capacity to deliver bulk water supplies to customers and the environment along 7000km of regulated rivers.

Adrian Langdon, Manager Water Delivery said more favourable seasonable conditions for the irrigation industry coupled with the heatwave conditions and environmental deliveries have driven demand beyond levels last seen in 2001-02.

Near-record demand for irrigation water was already being experienced this year, and with the current spell of hot weather, that demand has recently intensified, he said.

With more very hot weather forecast, we are reminding all customers of the importance of placing compliant water orders and then extracting water in accordance with that water order.

State Water is conducting aerial surveillance to assist in the monitoring of the regulated river systems.

Extracting water without an order is an offence with a maximum penalty of $2,200,000 for corporations and a maximum $1,100,000 for an individual, along with up to two years imprisonment.
