Wild Horse signs now on Pillaga Road.

Wild Horse signs now on Pillaga Road.

North West Local Land Services in conjunction with Narrabri Shire Council have had wild horse caution signs installed along the Wee Waa to Pilliga road to warn motorists of the potential hazard of collisions with wild horses in the area.

Wild horses are listed as a priority species in the North West Local Land Services region. The erection of these signs comes after reports from locals who have described near miss situations along this stretch of road. There is a known population in this area and they pose a hazard for all motorists, particularly those unfamiliar with the area.

Senior Biosecurity Officer, John Busby emphasised the importance of having this awareness for motorists, as a collision could be fatal. He said “Times to be most cautious are early morning and late evening when there is reduced visibility, however, horses can be out at all times of the day or night.”

Legal action looms over water sharing plans

Legal action looms over water sharing plans

Harriet Alexander Sydney Morning Herald

Floodplain graziers and environmental groups are considering legal action against the NSW government if it signs off on controversial water sharing plans, arguing the plans do not adequately take into account the needs of downstream users and the environment.

The Australian Floodplain Association, Macquarie Marshes Environmental Landholders Association and Inland Rivers Network have not ruled out litigation in the Land and Environment Court or the Federal Court if the plans are not amended to more evenly share the pain of a drier climate.

NSW water officials knew decades of unmeasured floodplain harvesting by irrigators was illegal

NSW water officials knew decades of unmeasured floodplain harvesting by irrigators was illegal

Kerry Brewster - Guardian

New South Wales water officials have acknowledged that decades of unregulated and unmeasured floodplain harvesting by irrigators was illegal, the minutes of recent meetings show.

At a January meeting, a week before the first drenching rains in northern NSW, members of a senior government water group discussed the legal implications of irrigators harvesting floodwaters, a widespread but unregulated method that accounts for up to a third of the water used by operators in the northern part of the Murray-Darling Basin.

The practice of irrigators collecting floodwaters using banks and levees to divert the water into large storages and dams has been blamed for contributing to declining flows further down the Murray-Darling River system. The 2018 South Australian royal commission described floodplain harvesting as “one of the most significant threats to water security in the Northern Murray-Darling Basin to both licence holders and downstream states”.
