The ACT gov has two large water projects planned. Enlarging the Cotter dam from 4gl to 78gl, this project has been started. The other project is to construct a 1metre diameter pipeline from the Murrumbidgee to Googong dam and pumping up to 20gl water annually out of the Murrumbidgee. This project is under a Controlled Action. The project will be assessed by Public Enviroment Report (PER).

We consider this project should be put on hold until the buy back plan is finallised in 2011. There may not be enough water to support these two large projects.

G’day all,

Thanks for checking out our blogsite. Responses seem to be a bit slow coming in, but I guess that’s just the pre-Christmas preoccupations with other things.

Chris Devitt’s posting is about ACT Government’s projects to expand Canberra’s storages. It’s not in our Terms of Reference to do an environmental or socio-economic impact analysis of that. But Canberra’s net consumption of water is tiny relative to the rest of water–use in the basin, and most of the gross take from the rivers returns to the Murrumbidgee via the Lower Molonglo Water Quality Control Centre, after Canberrans have drunk it, washed in it or with it, or flushed toilets with it.
