Katie Woolf spoke with Barry Whelan President of Southport Progress Assoc

Katie Woolf spoke with Barry Whalan from the Southport Progress Assoc regarding the communities desperate water situation.

The settlement is 150yrs old next year and between now and November (this year) they are likely to run out of water.

They have 2 bores, 1 owned by the Association and the other by the NT Gov that supply the entire township, there is about 50cms of water left over the pump. They have been talking to the government about this situation for quite some time but they haven't been getting answers.

The Mix360 Team are currently chasing answers.
