The City of Sydney needs at least a mete Sydney
The dams of Sydney are witnessing an alarming rate of depreciation. Sydney would need at least a metre of rain and a major flood to bring back the dam level at reasonable. Government agencies circulated the details of the State of Sydney catchments earlier this month. The State of New South Wales is preparing itself for an increased amount of stress on the State’s water supply, with a particular focus on Murray-Darling Basin.
A government document stated that it would take an approximate amount of 1000 millimetres of rain across the year to break the current situation of drought in Greater Sydney. The report further stated that it might also take over 200 millimetres of rain over one or two days. Sydney’s dams are about 48 percent full and are down by 10 billion litres over the past week. If the city’s desalination plant would not have produced 250 million litres the weekly drop of 0.4 percent would have been more.

Sydney Metro is looking to expand its network with seven new metros being prepared across Western Sydney. To create space for the subway stations, the government has issued order to evict residents of 115 properties. Several local businesses are also being demolished in the process, which also includes the entire Sydney Speedway.
One of the residents being evicted from his home is an 88- year old Martino Colacicco. He has lived at his five dock home for more than 50 years. He moved into the resident in 1966. However, a knock of his door by a government official changed everything. He was informed that his property was being acquired compulsorily by the government of New South Wales to make way for the new western metros. Mr. Colacicco said that this is not a democracy, and this is communism. The transport minister ensured a speedy recovery of the residents.

From the last 13 years, the controversial ‘Faces of the Community’ artwork was an integral part of the Cockburn Train Station. The two faces have, however, now been removed from the station. In a statement transport minister Rita Saffioti said that the Public Transport Authority had removed the artwork as there were some safety concerns.
The artwork was originally installed as a part of the public art project. The faces were composite of the 250 locals from the Cockburn area. The artwork cost $40,000, and now it was falling apart because of the sun damage. Ms. Saffioti said that there was a potential risk that a part of it might have fallen on to a person or a vehicle. Interestingly the people of the city said they are not going to miss it anyway.
