South Australia will release 100 billion litres of water to the federal government so that up to 6,000 drought-impacted farmers can grow fodder for their stock. The federal government will pay the South Australian government $88 million for the water, while it will also give it a $10 million ‘sweetener’ to help the South Australian government assist its own drought-impacted farmers. South Australian Premier Steven Marshall says the deal with the federal government will not lead to higher water prices or put at risk the state’s water security.
