The Victorian government is set to take
70 billion litres of water each year from the Goulburn and Murray Rivers.
This will destroy farming, fishing, towns and turn central Victoria into a desert.
Author, adventurer, wetland advocate and lifelong water-engineer, Steve Posselt, is supporting The Victorian Women's Trust, Friends of the Earth, WaterMark, Plug the Pipe and other key groups to bring attention to this dangerous travesty. He left Echuca on August 1 and will leave the Goulburn at Killingworth at 10:00 on Wednesday August 12.
