Got something to say about Tasmanian water?

Should it flow to Melbourne, freeing Victoria's water to flow to Adelaide?

Commentator Dave Bath says the inquiry into Melbourne's Future water supply, set up by the Vic Victorian Legislative Council is now open for submissions.

So get them in.

Some details on the inquiry here.

Kenneth Davidson in the Melbourne Age continues to promote the idea.

I think it's a storm in a teacup, Peter. I understand that while Tasmania may not currently need the water, it is unable to guarantee supply indefinitely - they may at some point need the water themselves. Therefore, the capital cost is prohibitive for a water supply they cannot ensure.

Kennith Davidson appears unaware of this point.

Even if Melbourne gets Tasmanian water (a stupid idea, but never mind) I _guarantee_ Adelaide won't see an additional drop. I doubt if it'll even cross the border.

Read the articles, Kymbos - the amount of water talked of is less than 10% of Tasmania's available water.
