Plan to tie water prices to drought conditions

Dr Ian Wright, Senior Lecturer in Environmental Science, Western Sydney University, joins Michael regarding yesterday’s announcement that there will be a major overhaul of water bills, which will reduce service charges but increases the rate each family pays per litre of water used in a move to encourage water conservation.
