Broken Hill - Menindee Lakes

Broken Hill is being concerned about Water Supply and considering a pipeline from the Murray amongst other things. Some years ago there was considerable funds allocated to improve the management of the Menindee Lakes and minimise evaporation of this valuable resource. The work could not be done as the Darling flooded and has not been completed. It is my understanding that the money is still on the table. Get on with the job and stop looking at the Murray as the saviour.

Why has such an important project not been completed. We talk and talk about what we are are really doing about the Murray Darling Basin, the drought cycle will return and this important project has just been overlooked.
