Water users must wake up on future of GAB

Upon attending the Cunnamulla meeting of the Great Artesian Basin Draft Water Plan last week, I came away more distressed about the future of the GAB than ever. This meeting, as most other meetings that have been held regarding the Draft Water Plan, was very poorly attended, due to lack of effective advertisement. I don’t believe that two or so people attending many of the scheduled meetings, for a Draft Plan that is going to shape the future of the GAB, is nearly good enough. The hydrologists go to great length to explain the current and future of the GAB using figures that could only be described as rubbery. If pressed, even they must admit that much of what they are presenting as fact, is really conjecture and “educated guesses”.
