Build More Dams Day By Viv Forbes
21 March 2020
24 million Australians are told to wash their hands thoroughly several times a day. Imagine the water demand – say 25 litres per person per day just for hand washing, taking total household usage to maybe 60 litres per person per day. For 24 million of us that could amount to 1,400 Ml per day - enough to empty the giant Lake Eucumbene in a few days. Greens celebrate Sunday 22nd March as World Water Day. Let’s make it “Build More Dams Day” and announce new dams and weirs NOW, with guaranteed money and start dates.
