Farmers at loggerheads with Government over Murray-Darling plan

    Description

    The environmental flows, proposed under the $13 billion Murray-Darling Basin Plan, were aimed at breathing new life into the Murray-Darling Basin river systems like billabongs, forests and wetlands, and to save native fish and birdlife.

    While farmers said they were not opposed to the water flows, they claimed the current proposals would result in extensive flooding on their properties.
