The GWG hopes to hold a Community Water Forum (covid19 restrictions allowing) on the morning of Saturday 24th October 2020 in Gingin. It would be a free event.

The GWG has received a grant from Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program. The grant is to assist with community awareness and engagement by the printing and distribution of the Landholder Water Information Package, the running of the Community Water Forum and holding five landholder field day information forums. One landholder field day forum is to be held in each of the five zones identified in the Gingin Brook and Lennard Brook areas. The map follows. A copy of the map is also on display in the Gingin CRC. The landholder water strategy zone information is available below, after the zone maps.

The forums will gauge if there is landholder interest in undertaking future on-ground work to protect the brooks. If there is interest further grants can be sought to provide assistance to landholders in undertaking activities. Any landholders, particularly those in the Neergabby area, who would be interested in more information about holding a forum on their property please respond by contacting GWG . Landholders interested in attending a forum or in being advised of future opportunities to receive assistance with on-ground works are also welcome to respond.
