Victoria’s water crisis gets worse.

Only 2000 ML a day going into the Thompson. At this rate, the desal wont be needed until 2060.

Victoria is definitely a state with a water crisis. Only 77.9% capacity.

  1. Lake Eildon averaging over 9,000ML a day for the first nine days of September. They (Goulburn Murray Water) has also released over 1.1 million ML this calendar year (1/3 of capacity). Or the entire capacity of the Thomson. Nah, no need to build any more dams, not going to rain again. Pffft.
