Water Thieves

Australia is not alone in under-investment in the water supply infrastructure.

A drought of investment.

The EUReferendum blog reports on Water Thieves in the UK.

To add insult to injury, the water companies then put up misleading posters (illustrated right), blaming the lack of rainfall for the current ten percent shortfall in stored water, when immigration has increased the population by over eleven percent since the 1980s, for which absolutely no provision has been made.

In W.A., population has more than doubled since the last dam was built; and catchments reassigned to “environmental flows”, so that flow into the dams is less than half of what it was with the same rainfall about 40 years ago.
