The Murray, lower Lakes are simply a terribly wasteful way of distributing the Murray/Darling water to the irrigaters of that area of South Australia. It saves a lot of money that would be otherwise required to distribute much less eastern water to these farmers to do the same job, while evaporating uselessly much water that could be better used in it's states of origin.

The whole area was naturally a salt water estuary, & should be returned to it's natural state.

It is a disgrace that the commonwealth government don't force SA to do the right thing, rather than let SA continue to be a parasite on half of the country.

TTBN 40 gig is a flea bite compared to the 2000 gig evaporated annually from the dam the lakes actually are.

Hasbeen,

The Commonwealth government shouldn't be involved. Many people believe that the lack of water comes from their meddling; many others think the whole Murray River deal should be torn up. It's a horrible mess, and nobody has the common sense to fix it.

Hasbeen not sure the intent is to pump into the Murray River
But know some water has been set aside to help those upstream
Stand to be corrected but never saw any pump desale plan

It's a sad image you all paint. Why don't you also admit that Australia has become a shithole for the dumping of China's population overflow, brought to you by politicians, bureaucrats and business people who are only interested in getting their hands on the money these Chinese are bringing into the country.

Take a walk around Sydney and the first thing one asks is 'Where are all the Australians?'

I don't know what - if anything - goes on in the heads of our hick politicians, but they seem to be totally unaware that they are are not dealing with a country (China) but with the Chinese Communist Party. And, the CCP is running rings around them.
