Update 9 June

The Bourke Shire Council motion, supporting its naked desire to plunder Clarence catchment water, was defeated after debate at the NSW Shires' Association Conference on 6 June 2007.
At the time Bourke local government area had no water restrictions in place, even though the main weir pool was barely running and its water was muddy [BSC,06.06.07].
It seems that Bourke Shire Council, along with Messrs. Howard and Turnbull, favours interbasin transfers above cleaning up its own water consumption practices or applying basic, longterm water management strategies.
