Forbes, NSW introduces its free water cart service in response to a regional drought

Forbes, NSW Free Water Cart Service Regional Drought

In Progress

The council purchased a 2,000-liter cart that is available to local residents not connected to the water system. Farmers and homeowners call the regional depot to schedule cart use. Forbes already provides free water pickup at the depot to counter a two-year drought. The council's Urban Services team uses the cart for other projects between reservations. This initiative eliminates private cartage fees that add up quickly for farms and rural households.
