With the diversity and growth of such a varied range of industries in the area, there has been an increasing demand for high-quality water storage facilities and infrastructure. As water is no longer the freely available commodity that it has been in the past, the community will need to have a stronger focus on harvesting and storing water in order to meet demand for future rural household and commercial supply.
