The statement (below and attached) serves as a real example of how the passion of people can give voice to the silent cries all around us..Silent no more, we all need to listen for the sake of OUR survival. There is much work to be done. 

Murray Darling Basin, Australia - Advisory Group. 
"We understand the problems being faced by the area including Lake Alexandrina, Lake Albert and the Coorong and the surrounding area in South Australia unless you travel along or near the Murray River from let’s say Wellington to Lock 1 at Blanchetown and speak to those affected and see the damage occuring it is very difficult to understand the hardships being experienced." says Peter R Smith (Immediate & last elected Past South Australian Vice-President Murray Darling Association,Member; Lower River Murray Drought Reference Group,Vice-President Murray Watch SA,Ex-elected Member Mid-Murray Council,Volunteer ‘Climate Change’ Presenter;Trained by Australian Conservation Foundation and Al Gore)

 A freshwater solution is in the best interests of the Murray Darling Basin as such we/I are not advocating the immediate construction of a Weir/Lock, we are seeking as a matter of urgently an “Environmental Impact Statement” be undertaken to explore all options for the future ie. “Plan for the Worse hope for the Best.”
