It's raining, it's pouring ...

... but that doesn't mean the drought has broken. In Brisbane, we've had stormy weather for what seems like weeks. Blackouts are back -- remember the fun of reading by candlelight? -- and the rain is greening gardens and lawns all over town. What it isn't doing is falling into dams -- so along with hail, winds and torrential downpours, we still have level 2 water restrictions. It's even worse elsewhere. The drought has lasted four years and the water crisis is real even if that's hard to believe when it's bucketing down outside. The Brisbane Institute has a paper on the water issue at http://www.brisinst.org.au/resources/brisbane_institute_queensland_water.html. It sets out what we need to do to avoid running out of water, and what role local government should play in getting things sorted. Posted by belinda at December 1, 2005 09:33 AM
