Australian irrigators urge NSW Government not to withdraw from Murray-Darling Basin PlanSeveral New South Wales irrigators are urging the state government to reconsider withdrawing from the Murray-Darling Basin Plan. The Senate last week blocked changes to the plan which would have provided another 70 gigalitres of water for irrigation communities in southern Queensland and northern NSW. This decision led Water Minister Niall Blair to declare the plan “untenable”.
The Murray-Darling Basin Authority estimates that the decision could cost 180 jobs across 15 communities, with Moree accounting for nearly one third of those.
Despite that, some irrigators in Moree do not want NSW to pull out of the plan. According to an article on en.brinkwire.com, they claim that if the plan collapses, it will create only more uncertainty around water security, which will put in jeopardy the agricultural investment that keeps towns like Moree alive.
