Yours faithfully,


Sent request to Department of Agriculture and Water Resources again, using a new contact address.

Right To Know was recently contacted by the department because they noticed a number of requests on the site that they hadn't received. When the department changed its web and email addresses in late 2015 the old email addresses continued to accept mail but were not configured to forward mail to their new addresses. This means the email was being successfully delivered by Right To Know but not reaching the department.

We've updated the department's details on Right To Know and have resent all affected requests, including this one.
