"No Chance": Peter Walsh refuses water for Toolondo Reservoir
By ERIN McFADDEN March 7, 2014, 1 a.m. - The Wimmera Mail-Times

MINISTER for Water Peter Walsh has ruled out any chance of water being released into the drying Toolondo Reservoir.

Toolondo residents discussed the state of the reservoir with Mr Walsh at the Wimmera Machinery Field Days on Thursday.

The Mail-Times reported in February that the reservoir was at 29 per cent capacity and residents wanted 5000 megalitres of water from Rocklands Reservoir to save the lake.

They believe their community is dying as water levels continue to drop.

The lake is also contaminated with blue-green algae.

Resident Melissa Kenealy asked Mr Walsh if there was any chance Toolondo could receive more water.

He basically said no, she said.

If water in Rocklands Reservoir reaches a certain level, it can be released into Toolondo.

He said for the water level in Rocklands to reach the trigger point, it needed a significant amount of water, Ms Kenealy said.

He is going to let Toolondo go dry.

We cant even get water to help with the blue-green algae outbreak.
