While Far North Queensland, the channel country, and much of Queensland's west is experiencing exceptional early summer rains, South East Queensland remains dry as it has done for several years.

The southeast is the most populous area of the State and growing on a daily basis, yet it has no water reserves.

THE SOLUTION... the revised Bradfield Scheme, a National Water Grid, an infrastructure asset owned and operated by the Federal government on behalf of, and in the best interests of, the people of Australia!

The Bradfield Scheme was included in the $640 million 5-Year Bicentennial Water Resources supplementary programme specifically to further investigate the advantages of massive amounts of additional fresh water supplies for Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, via Queensland's channel country, which feeds into the Murray-Darling delta.

The Labor Goss government in 1990 scrapped the feasibility study of the revised Bradfield Scheme citing the project cost as being prohibitive... so the current tragic water crisis began, and the rest is history!
