    Replacement Water for Fire Affected Landholders

    The fire situation in NSW remains extremely serious with 5,500 landholders across the State estimated to have been affected to date.The Agriculture and Animal Services Functional Area (AASFA) is supporting fire affected landholders through the provision of emergency water removed by the RFS for fire fighting purposes. Impacted landholders are encouraged to contact 1800 814 647 to discuss their needs.

    The unprecedented scale of the bushfire disaster and the number of affected landholders has created significant demand for support which may affect the timeframe in which water carriers can action requests.

    Prioritisation of emergency water provision will include:
    - significance of impact on animal welfare
    - significance of impact on intensive agricultural production.

    There are a range of financial support services available to eligible primary producers that can be used to resolve their immediate water issues. These are available through the Rural Assistance Authority and include:

    • Bushfire Disaster Recovery Grants of up to $15,000
    • Emergency Drought Transport Subsidy
    • Natural disaster Transport Subsidy

    To find out more about the Bushfire Recovery Grants, Transport Subsidies and the Drought Assistance Fund call the Rural Assistance Authority on 1800 678 593.
