OK, I admit I wasn’t good at maths, graphs and stuff at school – but does anyone know why, after all the rain we have had in the last month, dam levels are still hovering around the 90% mark?
I would have thought it would be over 100% by now, and that we would be hearing about ACTEW having to let the overflow down river.
According to BOM, in November 2010,
Mount Ginini received 210mm rain;
Tuggeranong (and presumably Googong) received 148mm;
Tidbinbilla received 155mm; and
‘Canberra’ (Airport) received 121mm.
So, what’s going on? Is it a conspiracy to prevent us from thinking that water is plentiful, so we can continue to be charged the proverbial ‘arm and a leg’ for this essential commodity?
