Senate Submission: The Urgent Provision of Water to the Coorong and Lower Lakes
In September 2008 this Submission was tabled at the Senate inquiry into water management in the Coorong and Lower Lakes. It addresses the local issues and options but also puts them in the context of the broader actions required across the entire Basin to deliver healthy rivers, wetlands, floodplains and estuary. The Submission recommends that these actions be brought together into an Interim Basin Plan.
An Interim Basin Plan could be prepared in a matter of weeks and
would give important signals to the market and all users of the Basin on which to begin to plan for the future that confronts us all.
