LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Irrigators face tough choices In response to ‘‘Dry times proof of plan’s importance’’ by MDBA chief executive Phillip Glyde (Country News, July 31).
Phillip warns of impending drought conditions but with ‘‘a MDB plan now in place it will work in the interests of everyone in the basin’’.
I wonder what food-producing irrigators would say about the price of temporary water rising to $400/Ml and water shares at record pricings of $4000/Ml (caused by the changes).
They now have the choices of either going broke using more water to grow the food or selling water and not to grow food.
Goulburn-Murray Water must be wondering what is happening with increasing debtors and water diverting at rates unsustainable for G-MW and farmers in this district. — William Morgan Invergordon
