“This funding reiterates the State Government’s understanding of how vital a decent supply of good quality water is to Boorowa families and how it will help the town to grow,” Ms Goward said.
“The NSW Government has recognized that this is a high priority project for the community of Boorowa and is providing up to $265,000 for 50 per cent funding of the estimated cost of $530,000 for this important project”.
“This funding is part of the NSW Government Safe and Secure Water Program to ensure regional communities have the right infrastructure into the future,” Ms Tuckerman said.
Mayor Brian Ingram welcomed the announcement and the support of the state government in the delivery of a scoping study for the Boorowa water security project.
“This pipeline is the number one infrastructure priority for Hilltops Council and I look forward to completing the business case so that we can move forward with delivery for the community.
“Thank you to Pru Goward MP for her help in securing this much needed funding,” Cr Ingram said .
