Emergency water supplies are used in times of great need, usually for firefighting or in case of damaging drought.
Our region has multiple water supply points that provide water for emergency stock and domestic purposes during severe dry seasonal conditions, surface water scarcity, and bushfires. Some sites are also equipped to supply water to firefighting vehicles.
