The nonsense I am reading

The nonsense I am reading in relation to the proposed Hell’s Gate dam is absolutely ridiculous. The Hell’s Gate dam is not needed, all that is needed is what was originally required in 1983 and that is gravity feed pipeline of sufficient size to deliver the volume of water needed for Townsville to top up the Ross River dam from the mighty Burdekin Falls Dam. Sadly the State Premier of that time refused to put up the required amount of money to ensure that it was built, and we have ended up with the cheap alternative which is far too expensive to use.

A gravity feed pipeline from the Burdekin Falls Dam can and should be built by a combination of Local, State and federal governments, let the conversations cease and the action begin, all be it nearly a quarter of a century late, but in Townsville’s case better late than never.
