Inquiry Into Fast Tracked Dams

Sunday, 13 September 2020 - 11:00am to 11:30am
No New Dams

A NSW Upper House inquiry is underway into the impacts of dams in the Murray Darling fast tracked by NSW Government.

The Murray-Darling supports RAMSAR wetlands and critical ecosystems for endangered fish & migratory birds and supplies food for millions. So whether you live near a project, downstream or elsewhere in Australia these projects effect you! 

This week on Earth Matters we hear from community members opposing the Wyangala Dam and Macquarie Re-regulating Weir as well and the NSW State Upper House Greens MP chairing the inquiry.
