    Farmers are raising concerns about some of the challenges around the new healthy waterways package

    Farmers are raising concerns about some of the challenges around the new healthy waterways package


    The 700-million dollar government package will go towards cleaning up rivers and lakes around the country.

    Farmer Andy Thompson says they are worried around the nitrogen cap that wasn't in the original document.

    He says legal action could be taken because farmers had no opportunity to submit on the decision.
