A pity there wasn’t a few decision makers with backbone a few years back when hydrologists from the NT Water Resources Department identified an area above Katherine Gorge with a huge catchment suitable for a dam and reservoir.

But as is often the case, these days the “noisy minority never do anything clique” get their way.
