AROWS water study on target in the Northern Territory

24 February 2021

The Australian and Northern Territory governments have announced the completion of the Adelaide River Off-Stream Water Storage (AROWS) preliminary assessment.

The Australian Government’s commitment of $2 million to the AROWS business case will help increase water security in areas where extensive irrigation already exists, while helping unlock new agricultural areas.
