Has anyone seen the state of the Murrumbidgee River near the Cotter Pumping Station.
It looks like chocolate milk, not much water at all and almost stagnant looking. Yummo
Pumping from the river is one of ACTEW’s backup plans if we run the dams dry or become unusable.
Does Actew have a backup plan to the backup plan ?
I can’t see Snowy Hydro releasing water for us without paying a lot of money as they are holding back and reducing the normal flow of water to the Bidgee, Murray and Snowy River to keep their Electricity Contracts viable whilst the Snowy dams are so empty.
[ED – I reckon Snowy Hydro will cough up if the price is enough to unwind their energy futures, no-one said it would be cheap]
