Mildura: biggest water user or waster

It annoys me to read

MILDURA is officially Victoria’s biggest water user, figures released today show.

Households in the state’s far north-western town used an average of 348 litres per person per day last year, the HeraldSun reports.

Now, I haven’t driven through in a couple of years but the last time I was there in the middle of summer I was disgusted to see irrigared nature strips throughout the whole municipality.

Granted, Mildura’s irrigation system is amazing but they seem to have a God given right to waste water keeping everything green whilst the towns in the upper reaches of the catchment go without and they cannot get enough water out the other end in South Australia to keep the river flowing.
