Waste of Good Water

Letter published in The Australian on Friday 13th August,2010

“In a world worrying about food security, would someone please explain to me why both our main political parties and the Greens want to send fresh water downstream to Australia’s most inefficient water storage-the Lower Lakes- where most of it will evaporate, rather than removing The Barrages at the mouth of the Murray River and returning the Lakes to the natural estuary they once were?
