Water theft charges laid after pressure by the Conservative Party

August 28, 2018

A number of charges have been issued for alleged water theft in both north and south of New South Wales following pressure by Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi in the Senate.

The Natural Resources Access Regulator (NRAR) – the new independent water regulator in NSW has issued a number of charges some of which carry potential fines of more than $1 million.

A Moree company and irrigators from Mallawa, Walgett and Carinda are set to face the Land and Environment Court for charges relating to various water offences.

Senator Bernardi highlighted allegations about water theft and corruption in the Senate earlier this year.

Senator Bernardi also called into question the federal government's actions in seeking to derail South Australia's Royal Commission into the Murray Darling Basin.
