After statements and actions by some Rous councillors, I am left wondering how many refusals to accept the democratic vote at their meetings would it take to be considered just plain vexatious?
We have a dam, which is excellent. The rest of our water strategies should be drought proof, rain independent.
The new IWCM includes many options. Logically, we should have all of them shovel ready. The more options, the more resilient the system.
My preferred option is purified recycled water. This ‘toilet to tap’ rubbish is a scare tactic. We already drink recycled water. Chances are if you live downstream from a town with a water treatment plant, it is more than likely that purified waste water goes into the creek, which is likely to be drawn as part of the water supply for your town, after further purification.
There is no need to destroy any Aboriginal heritage, rare forest, koala or platypus habitat for an expensive asset, which will be empty in a protracted drought, when there are better options available.
