It’s all about development on tap - Not Water.
Spending $1billon dollars for 14m of concrete and steel is about holding back water for longer, to open land for urban sprawl.
Now the tidal wave of urban sprawl is the real danger to the peri-urban food bowl of the Wollondilly and the Hawkesbury . On top of these concerns, this announcement if enacted, will diminish the health of the Nepean and Hawkesbury rivers to the north and to the south we will see irrevocable injury to our natural rivers and priceless indigenous and early settler heritage.
If you believe that $1billion tax payer dollars could be much better spent on other dams, water security policies, and on infrastructure and evacuation planning for current residents of Sydney's west and north west - please sign.
