South Australia Water Prognosis. Grimmer and Grimmmer


In a week when we finally get some rain, it is depressing to see this and read this.

234km upstream of its now mud- and sand-choked entrance to the Southern Ocean, the river flowed proud and strong. People would ski and fish in the lagoon at nearby Walker Flat, on one of the Murray's most picturesque reaches.

Today, the waterhole is virtually dry. Lifeless gum trees stand like sun-scorched toothpicks on its banks, where the water used to be waist-deep. "I walked out the other day with waders into a metre of mud," said David le Brun, who operates night tours for visitors to Big Bend.

"For the people on the river, who live on it, it is devastating."

Nothing new, just the grim reality.

Very like the Colorado River just as it enters Mexico. Everybody else gets their dibs. South Australia gets the dregs.

South Australia, the water gringos of Australia.

Ya, that right, that when we get some rains we feel happy. Its obvious that one city gets lots of water and the other get the remains. But still I think we should accept what we get.

Actually the Murray is not the primary source of drinking water for Adelaide itself, but whole livelihoods are built on access to irrigation water from the river. Whole ecosystems are under threat from the low water flows. These are not going to come back in the short term.

I understand that there is only so much that you can do to fight nature, but it is a bit of a catastrophe. The knock on effect is going to be higher water prices for consumers and higher prices for the products that we have come to expect.
