Dambusters Call for Downstream Communities to help reveal the truth about the proposed Traveston Crossing Dam by putting submissions to the Senate Inquiry.
A press statement by Deputy Premier Anna Bligh released last week criticized the Mary River Council of Mayors Study into water supply options for SE Qld. A review of water options for South East Queensland by the University of Technology, Sydney's Institute for Sustainable Futures (ISF) and Brisbane-based engineering firm Cardno has found that the Traveston Crossing dam scheme is neither necessary nor desirable. The Institute also prepared a response to a critique of the report put forward by the Queensland Deputy Premier, Treasurer and Minister for Infrastructure Ms Anna Bligh claiming she is badly informed.
Closing date for submissions for the Senate Inquiry is 4th April 2007. Environmental Researcher for The Save the Mary River Coordinating Group, Glenda Pickersgill is calling for downstream communities to come and find out more information how the Senate Inquiry will help reveal the truth about the proposed Traveston Crossing Dam and how to place a submission. A public information night will be held at the Maryborough Town Hall on Monday 19th March with 7 pm start. There will be screening of the Mary Valley's first documentary "The Damning of Mary", telling the story of what it is like to battle to Save the Mary River. Information on potential downstream impacts of the Traveston Crossing Dam proposal is available on a new website www.ourgreatsandy.com
