Bringing back water to wetlands

Water groups unite to bring water back to wetland
By Deb O'Callaghan. Thursday, 5 April  2012 - ABC Rural

Nothing divides a community quite like water.
And throughout the Murray-Darling Basin plan debate, it's often been irrigators versus the environmentalists.
But recently on the banks of the Gol Gol creek just over the border from Mildura, all groups stood together and opened a new regulator that will allow water back into a wetland that for years had missed out, even in times of flood.
The Gol Gol Lake is a 494-hectare wetland, home to river red gums, black box and migratory birds, and with Aboriginal cultural heritage significance.
For the past 30 years, the majority of floods were excluded from the lake because of an earthen levee bank built in the creek.
This new structure will allow better management of flow into the Gol Gol Lake as it can be opened and shut when environmental water is available, or at times of high flow.....

A win, win sitution for all parties involved. Great to see some common sense prevail with the Cockies and the Environmentalists uniting for once for the common good.  :youbeauty
