TWO PROJECTS APPROVED FOR FEDERAL DROUGHT FUNDING

The improvement in quality of the region’s cattle grids is the first project Tamworth Regional Council will embark upon, after being approved to use federal drought funding.

Bulk water-filling stations will also be installed in six of the city’s surrounding villages, as well as an additional facility in Tamworth.

The new stations will be similar to the one already in place on Lockheed Street.

Council says it will help with filling rain-water tanks and providing drinking water for stock.
