The Federal and Northern Territory Governments continue to collaborate to deliver cleaner and more reliable drinking water to remote and rural communities across the Northern Territory. 

A joint investment of $8 million is being made in the Community Infrastructure Assessment project, which will allow for the assessment of water services in 55 remote communities. 

“Most Australians would be shocked to learn that tens of thousands of people in remote communities still don’t have access to healthy drinking water,” Federal Minister for the Environment and Water Tanya Plibersek said.  

“Our government is working with the Northern Territory Government and remote communities to identify, plan and deliver water security projects. This announcement builds on the more than $50 million we invest in water projects in Northern Territory communities like Milingimbi, Yuendemu, Maningrida and Yirrkala.” 

The project will provide an engineering analysis of essential water services, viable solutions to secure water supplies, and how to unlock community growth and identify development opportunities. 

“The remote communities that will benefit from this investment and the project will allow for the identification of further improvement in water supply,” Northern Territory Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Water Security Kate Worden said. “The government invests in the bush, and projects like these continue our work to Close the Gap for Indigenous communities.”
