The message is clear. The Lower Hunter region simply does not need another dam. In a report by the Wilderness Society and co-authored by Dr Simon Fane of the Institute of Sustainable Futures on a sustainable water strategy for the Lower Hunter they say: ‘By implementing water conservation and demand management programs, similar to those currently in place in Sydney, all future water needs of the Lower Hunter region can be adequately met for many decades to come.’ ┬áThis alternative analysis ensures acceptable levels of water security without requiring any new dams to be built, while still accounting for the high end prediction of population growth in the Lower Hunter region.
