There's a hole in the bucket - The RGA questions the equity of water sharing

17 Oct 2018 10:00 AM -
The Ricegrowers’ Association of Australia (RGA) is extremely concerned that the Murray-Darling Basin Agreement has resulted in less water being available to the NSW Murray following the 15th October water allocation statements.

Mr Jeremy Morton, President of the RGA, stated, “It is intolerable that the current water sharing framework has resulted in the NSW share of the available water in the Murray system being reduced by 40,000ML. In its simplest terms South Australia's bucket of water has been full since April, the Victorian bucket continues to fill while the New South Wales bucket has a hole in it.”
