Water Wednesday – Is there really spare water in the South East?
A special forum presented by the Water Research Centre at the University of Adelaide on 23 June 2010.
Many people in the wider community think that water is being wasted by flowing out to sea via the South East drainage system, but is there really water to spare? Over 48% of the South East region were originally wetlands, providing abundant water source for agricultural development. Now it is less than 6 percent. Does the South East have enough water for its own economic, environmental and social needs, let alone water to spare for diversion to other regions?
This event was well attended and a great opportunity for attendees to listen to experts and to express their own views.
