BUY BACK LEASES

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - OPINION -

Wa­ter is the most im­por­tant fac­tor in the sur­vival of out­back Aus­tralia. As a dras­tic mea­sure to main­tain the sur­vival of farm­ers and fish in NSW along the Murray Dar­ling Basin, it may be pos­si­ble to pe­ti­tion the gov­ern­ment to buy back the wa­ter leases and ask for the re­lease of the me­gal­itres of wa­ter held in dams that they stop each year from en­ter­ing the basin sys­tem.

That would save the rivers, the fish and the farm­ers.
