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?
