Channeling Water is NOT Natural: Dr Jennifer Marohasy

For many years Dr Jennifer Marohasy has advocated the restoration of the Murray River’s estuary. Jennifer maintains The Myth and the Murray website

In this short video, Dr Marohasy makes the following points:
  • Water resource planning is brought about by BUYING back water from agriculture and channeling it down to the Murray's mouth (an unnatural diversion);
  • Peter Andrews: Before European Settlement, the rivers hardly ever made it to the sea;
  • Explorer Charles Sturt: Australian Rivers....before they reach the coasts....naturally exhaust themselves into marshes and lakes...
  • Jen Marohasy: The Murray's mouth could be scoured by the tides of the Southern Ocean if only sea water was allowed back into Lake Alexandrina
