Stage 4 on hold as ACTEW opens the flood gates

By Ntp 19 June 2007 41

The CT reports that the planned Stage 4 water restrictions are now on hold.

IBN reports that despite this hold on increased restrictions the Govt is still talking tough (although we didn’t see much in the way of money for contingency plans in the recent budget).

At the same time as this IBN informs us ACTEW “is preparing to release 2 gigalitres of dam water to carry out routine maintenance.” In the article the Opposition leader Bill Stefaniak makes the apparently sensible suggestion that “it would seem smarter to save the water by allowing normal usage over 20 days to lower the water level and then do the maintenance.”

That is the problem. Science and engineering, and not economics.

Also never mind the poltical appointment running the show is a Keating government refugee. Getting rid of that joker would also be a good start, and then decoupling the entire organisation from the ACT Government.
