These recommendations are based on a continued level of consumption which is far in excess to per capita usage in other towns in N.T. This can be largely attributed to the significant irrigation of public and government insititutional lawn areas. The eventual Department of wi th funding marked effect hand over of town management from Community Development to a Town Council by rates, would be expected to have a on current consumption patterns. A review by the Conservation Commission of the N.T. of the Town's irrigation requirements for public, institutional, and significant private developments should be sought. 32
