The Menindee Lakes in far west NSW are the site for large water savings project under the Murray Darling Basin Plan. After seeing this unique ecosystem decline over the past 2 decades, the local community is fiercely opposed to any changes that would leave the lakes with less water.
Tom Kennedy Broken Hill City Councillor and publicity officer for the Darling River Action Group and Jane MacAllister community organiser for water for the Nature Conservation Council of NSW and Councillorfor Wentworth Shire join us to discuss the projects.
This week's show is #1254, and was produced by Megan Williams.
