Here’s one to start an argument. The ABC tells us that inflows into the ACT water supply dams are 90% below the long term average.
The ABC pins it all on rainfall, but the propensity of regenerating forest to guzzle it wouldn’t help.
So what are Canberrans going to do now about saving water? Is there any point in even trying if industry, our limited horticulture, the public service, commerical/retails buildings and the Arboretum continue on their merry way?
