Water NSW has a proposal on the table to design and build a 20 kilometre tunnel from Fitzroy Falls Reservoir to Avon Dam.

The tunnel would have a carrying capacity of 1800 megalitres per day and provide another source of water supply to Greater Sydney and ease stress on Warragamba.

Water NSW is currently in the early stages of the proposal.

A meeting was held with with residents in Burrawang last weekend to discuss the project.
