Niall stands firm

Monday, 9th November, 2015

The state government has again ruled out using bore water as a permanent supply for Broken Hill.

Water Minister Niall Blair said the government was also “steadfastly committed” to investing up to half a billion dollars to secure the city’s water supply.

Mr Blair was forced to clarify the government’s position on supplying groundwater to the city after comments by his federal counterpart, Barnaby Joyce.
