To dam or not to dam?
Is a dam a solution or a problem? Is a river flood a man made or natural disaster? Is a river flood always a disaster ?
Things are never as simple as they might first appear. There are different sides to every story, plan or newspaper headline. The way we manage our water is one such story. People have different opinions. For example, what does the farmer think of a Fitzroy Dam? What does the local business representative think about it? The Environmentalist? A resident of Rockhampton? A Marine biologist? Do they agree or disagree with the Premier that the dam is a good idea?
