Will Melbourne go thirsty?

Dam level to hit record lows

Water levels are about to hit historic lows triggering emergency measures that have never been used.  Reliance on pumping the dregs to Melbourne’s water supply – predicted to be as soon as July – could trigger panic in the wider community.

There is no way the State Government can allow the “masses of Melbourne” to go thirsty and expect to maintain the rule of law.  Their role is to maintain the sovereignty of the State and they will provide the water by taking it from the country – real fast.  We can expect it to trigger the rapid completion of the north-south pipeline even if they have to declare a state of emergency.

The Opposition has said that it should never have come to this, and I agree. They say the state government has chosen to rely on untested emergency measures instead of putting down tighter water restrictions – but it is too late for that to save the day.  Just watch it happen

  1. I don’t see how the restrictions in Melbourne could be much tougher and the Opposition is just talking hot air – what would they have done about it? Maybe Brumby will get lucky, like Bligh did in Qld. She made it rain (!!) and won the election on the strength of it.

    The main problem is still cubby station in Qld and similar water hogging set-ups, which are actually affecting all of Victoria. Oh, and a bit more rain would help too. (excuse me while I scroll down to find the ‘post comment’ button)

  2. Ah, that’s better, Greg. This is ‘The journalist’ theme MK II or whatever. It’s the same theme I use except with variations.

    When WP introduced it they just changed all existing Journalist-themed blogs over to the new template, without warning. There was such an outcry that they were forced to re-instate the original option.

    I like this template – it’s neat & clean and easy to read – but if I switched to it I’d have to go back and re-size nearly all my photos and edit most of my text. I’ll stick with what I have.
