Western Sydney faces water crisis ...

7 November 2009

The State Government must consider curbing population growth in western Sydney because there will not be enough water to sustain agriculture, recreation and environmental flows in the region, scientists say.

More than 600,000 extra residents will live in western Sydney by 2031, according to the State Government's Metropolitan Strategy.

But scientists working for the water strategy group WISER say there will be only just enough water for drinking and bathing, leaving little for the region's market gardens, playing fields, and the Hawkesbury-Nepean River system.
