The Maquarie Marshes are a vital part of keeping a balance in nature, a more stable environment and survival of all the native species, many of which are endangered. Damming the marshes makes NO sense. Evaporation from the marshes is NOT water going to waste. The evaporated water is able to be taken up by plants and most importantly creates rain clouds - as can be seen when one flies over an island with vegetation on it. Please do not dam the Macquarie Matshes. Surely by now we all understand: man CANNOT control nature

These inland rivers are so fragile in a continent that is acknowledged as 'dry'. The original Gin-Gin Weir designers got it right. Don't exploit it further, to cater for agribusiness profit expansion.

This isn't sensible the rivers need to flow for the sake of the environment.

Anything that interferes with the natural flow is death to those further down the river. This should be stopped.

Damming the Macquarie is not in the best interests of Australians!

Stopping this weir is vital. When will those in power realise that environmental health is NON NEGOTIABLE

Our inland river systems are being destroyed and its time we looked upon them as more than just a source of water. They are an entire ecosystem.
