Waters and Rivers

Without adequate water and healthy rivers and oceans, there will be no scope to meet government strategies, let alone obtain secure water sources for agriculture. The Murray River system is in great peril, longer term rainfall is declining, many watercourses are highly degraded, groundwater systems have been over-extracted, oceans are being polluted. And yet, "development" proceeds apace. Have we reached the limits? Let's discover what's going on. First ... a bit of history.
