From swamp to mudflats in 18 months


According to information in the Environmental Impact Statement, this is what the proposed Traveston Crossing Dam would have looked like in February 2003.  Download this document (9 pictures) and click through to see just how quickly the proposed dam would fail in a drought.  It destroys a huge area of valuable farmland and would only hold a small amount of water, which it would lose very quickly to evaporation and seepage during dry times. Although it would empty and fill up very quickly, like a shallow saucer left out in the rain, it would not  provide useful long term storage for the times when it is needed the most.   This project will not provide water security to South East Queensland - it is a total waste of our money and yet another Queensland environmental disaster in the making.
