A: We’re unsure on the exact figures, as receiving water in this manner is not actually relied upon on the homelands. If there was a transport of water into the area required, it would most likely be in response to a cyclone or flood emergency.
The homelands almost always rely on local water supply (bores, ground water, lagoon/river, or rainwater harvesting).
EWB Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to them, their cultures and their land; to Elders both past and present; and to emerging leaders. We recognise that the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people never ceded sovereignty of what we call Australia.
