It is gone beyond the time for drought relief half way through a drought but time for future preventative measures.
Farming is the backbone of any nation, without it affects everyone. It should never get to the state it is now. Farmers should not be put through the stress they are under.
Going forward we need to see pipelines to be run from our major dams, and or new dams, that will allow direct supply to farms, or access to filling stations close to the farms, that are there to be used in times of drought only.
We have a desalination plant that has plenty of capacity to provide extra water to supply these drought relief water supplies. Costs of these drought relief water supplies needs to be shared.
The state and federal governments need to pay for the infrastructure. Maintenance to be payed by state government and cost of water to the farmers payed by all Australians by a small increase in tax, say a 1% drought relief tax. AUSTRALIANS will save more than the 1% increase with cheaper cost to the consumer of farming produce, as there won't be major price fluctuations due to affects of drought.
