Goulburn Valley Water Piped To Melbourne

The Bracks government 1 billion dollar plan to update irrigation infrastructure, and build a major water pipeline from Melbourne to Shepparton has come under some scrutiny. The plan will stop leaks and prevent evaporation caused by current rundown infrastructure, and the water savings will be piped to Melbourne, farmers and the environment.

Some GV residents are concerned about the priority of water savings going to Melbourne before local farmers. The clear thing is to understand, this plan was only initiated to help increase dwindling water supplies for Melbourne. Melbourne is Australia second biggest city with a population of almost 4 million people, a population that needs more water resources then the million or so Victorian rural population.

People of the Goulburn Valley should feel blessed to be chosen for such a plan, not only for the huge amount of government investment and infrastructure building, but also for the water savings obtained not only for Melbourne but GV farmers as well.

Would you agree to a $100,000 loan without knowing the terms conditions? No, so why make a judgement of $1 billion without the facts.

I challenge you to find out:
1. What dividends the labour government has taken from rural water authorities since taking office?
2. How much has the labour government directed back into rural water infrastructure since taking office?
3. How much economic value does 75 gl of water generate in the GV? Both in initial income and the amount of employment it creates and what those employees spend back in the local community. Is job at risk be cause your customers arn't able to make a living
4. What do melbourne residents actually need 75gl of water for and what economic productivity does it generate
5. Think about the comparison that melbournes main water source has in excess of 30% capacity, while GV Eildon is less than 8%. Who needs the water
6. What will the $1bil actually be spent on, will it actually put more water into the system? How will it actually be spent?
7. Why doesn't the GV deserve the water infrastructure upgrade with no strings attached?
8. What is more effective? that bracks spend $800m on piping water from the GV or upspecing the desalination plant
9. Why should melbourne be made drought proof when one of the most productive regions in victoria not be?

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]

The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

hi everyone,
just because there is 4 million people in melbourne and only 1 million in country victoria, doesnt mean the're less important! you say people in the Goulburn Valley should feel 'blessed', well when you have very little water and are trying to provide juice and fruit for the wider Australia, and then some nit wit comes and takes the little water you have on the grounds that 'they need it more' then you can complain!!
