Noted and thank you Carrie. I live in the southwest of Western Australia. We were always a high rainfall area, not anymore. In summer wells dams everything dries up. Australia is such a dry country and we tend to live near the coast. Central Australia is dry, dry, dry sandy and extremely hot and sunny. It is perfect for large solar infrastructure not our Government because climate change is all lies. So scary.

I've been visiting Queensland twice a year for the last 7 years now, coming to a little village lose to Toowoomba, the city mentioned in the article, and I0m absolutely flabbergasted at Toowoomba's rejection of a recycling unit. Not only because it was just recovering from a seven years draught and should have known better, but because it is the best green option too, besides being the cheaper one.
True, the region was struck by floods a few years ago, but since then a new draught has started which not only is detrimental to the water supplies, but also results in more and more raging bush fires.

We still plan on settling down in our village in a few years time, but we'll make sure our house will have it's own grey water system, recycling as much water as possible.

They will have to try and implement some sort of plan for future water... the animals and vegetation is going to suffer tremendously
