People for A Living Moorabool Coordinator Cameron Steele spoke to the program about the issues affecting the river.

“For many years People for A Living Moorabool (PALM) has been lobbying government for more water flows in Victoria’s most over-allocated river – the Moorabool,” the group said in a statement.

“By the time the Moorabool River reaches to Batesford – if indeed it does – its flows have been reduced by 90% because of water authority dams and water extraction. Government figures show that over the last 15 years inflows into the river have fallen by over 20% due to the impact of climate change. ”

“The Moorabool is in serious trouble.”
