BONDI, Australia — Bondi is the Australian city where the residents of its suburbs are paying more for a greener environment than the national average.
The city of more than 1 million people is one of only a few cities in Australia where residents have been paying a premium for a cleaner environment, and it is paying that premium in a way that could help make it one of the country’s greenest.
In Bondi, residents of the CBD have to pay a premium to avoid a water shortage that is expected to be the worst in decades, with officials saying it will cost the region an estimated $20.2 million to fix and replace drinking water and sewage systems.
A major issue is the water shortage, which has forced the city’s residents to pay for water infrastructure upgrades and water conservation measures.
Bondsi has also invested heavily in its water supply, with more than 50 per cent of its water being treated and treated by water treatment plants, compared to the national level of just 20 per cent.
But even that is only a fraction of the water being pumped out of the city, which also has one of Australia’s highest rates of home water usage.
“The problem is, with water coming in, and then we have to treat it and pump it out, that costs us $7 per person per day,” said John Smith, an environmental engineer who works for Bondi Water.
It’s not just water that Bondi residents are paying for.
For residents of other parts of the province, that price is even higher, Smith said.
Residents of nearby areas in the north, west and south have to shell out a little more for clean drinking water, Smith added.
Smith said the cost is not just for Bondis water, but for the water in other areas that it serves.
Water is a commodity.
It’s not something that Bondis can just go and get for free.
Bondi’s water is a critical resource, Smith told CBC News.
If Bondi was to have more money for clean water infrastructure, Smith says, that would be a good thing.
This is the only city in Australia with the kind of water infrastructure that’s in place to deal with the water shortages, he said.
But what is the money going toward?
According to Smith, the city is spending $10.6 million to purchase and install green infrastructure that will help it improve water quality and prevent water bottlenecks.
That money will be used to install about 70 kilometres of water treatment pipes, which will help reduce water usage by 30 per cent in the CBD and 50 per, 60 per, 80 per and 100 per cent over the rest of the year, Smith estimates.
However, there’s no guarantee the money will make a difference.
As the water crisis worsens, Bondi is working to build the first water treatment plant in the city.
It will cost $9.6 billion to build, according to Smith.
So far, Bondis city council has committed to spending $8.8 billion to repair and replace the water supply system.
And while that’s a significant amount, it’s not all Bondi can do.
The city has also committed to purchasing new roads to increase access to the CBD, but those roads will cost nearly $1 billion, Smith notes.
One of the most important things that Bond is doing is making sure that residents of surrounding areas know about the project and what the city will be doing to make sure they are able to participate, Smith explained.
There is also a new water conservation program that Bond will be working with local councils to provide to residents of nearby communities, Smith noted.
All of that means that, for now, Bond has taken a serious and measured approach to the problem, Smith warned.

On Monday, the state government declared a statewide water emergency in the state, which is part of an emergency declaration from the federal government for the entire country.
The water crisis has led to water rationing in some parts of Bondis.
At the same time, there are also warnings of the worst water crisis in decades.
New South Wales is one province which has been hit hardest by water shortages.
Most residents in the region rely on a tap water supply from the Great Barrier Reef National Park, which supplies almost half of the state’s water needs.
The national park is home to about 500 species of fish, including the endangered blue shark.
The Blue Shark is a species that can live up to 30 years.
