Darling River is copping a hiding

Blokes scared to water their horses - 1000's of dead fish - towns carting in water coz the waters no longer safe to drink - A big QLD storm is their only hope

If you watch the footage closely - you will notice he was very lucky he said everything he wanted to say before the overwhelming urge to spew took over

I could be wrong but his instant recovery from the first 2 dry heaves was a bit suss

The seems to be a few fellas along the river trying to add oxygen back into the system.

Some blokes were targeting a particular snag where and big cod lived.

The guy in the link shows what a bit of oxygenated water can pull in

From facebook

"One cotton farm in Queensland, Cubbie Station, is licensed to take 460 Billion litres of water from the Darling River system every year. That's the equivalent of all irrigation entitlements downstream in north-western NSW or all the water in Sydney Harbour.
Share if you think that water should be used to save the Darling River instead."

"Cubbie station diverts entire rivers, the Culgoa and Balonne, into its dams. This foreign owned firm has water storages 28 kilometres long capturing 460 billion litres of Murray-Darling headwaters. Meanwhile, farmers downriver can have a BBQ on the Darling."

Yeah theres a heavy bias on those facebook pages which blames those farm dams for everything. The pages dont mind distorting facts and images to suit their agenda.

But theres definietly more that could be done to increase the flow those rivers receive

I could understand the use of so much water if it was being used more appropriately but to use so much of a precious resource to irrigate two of the most water reliant crops as cotton and rice in this country defies logic.

True that - and if my ponds at work are anything to go by - the amount of evaporation from those dams would be insane - no wonder the poor buggers have to constantly turn on their pumps illegally.
