Stand up for our Murray



ABC's 4 Corners program has raised serious allegations of water theft and dodgy dealing that is undermining the Murray-Darling Basin Project, a $13 billion scheme designed to protect our River — and the people, wildlife and ecosystems that rely on it to survive.


We call on Assistant Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources Senator the Hon Anne Ruston to push for an urgent inquiry into this vital program.


Every litre paid for by taxpayers to aid the River’s long term health that ends up stolen by upstream irrigators is an attack on the Murray Darling Basin Plan and a direct hit on SA.


This is crunch time for the Plan. A dead River benefits no one. 


And South Australia has the most to lose if the Murray Darling Basin Plan goes pear shaped.


We call on Senator Ruston to act quickly to save the integrity of the Plan. Will you add your voice?

Dear Senator Ruston

As the Assistant Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources and a South Australian with your heart in the Riverland, we call on you to ensure our state's interests are represented.

We need an urgent inquiry into the Murray-Darling Basin Plan to ensure all claims of water theft and compromised commitment from the NSW Government are investigated. The Plan must get back on track.

The integrity of the Plan must be restored in full to ensure the interests of South Australians and our state's environment are protected.

Our Murray is the lifeblood of SA. We call on you to stand up for our state and the Plan that will keep its lifeblood flowing.
