The perennial problem of water - too much of it in some areas of Australia and too little in others, has been the focus of a great deal of debate in recent months and the Conservative Party wants a solution.
South Australian Senate candidate Rikki Lambert says a number innovative schemes for diverting large volumes of water into drought-prone Australian river systems could irrigate and drought-proof those regions. The same schemes are readily dismissed by the political class, even though historically the Snowy Mountain Scheme is one significant example of nation-building, drought-proofing infrastructure.
Rikki has told FIVEaa's Andrew Reimer, while such schemes are very expensive to execute, their financial viability should be frequently examined by the federal government and published so the public can debate whether to proceed with drought-proofing Australia's inland.
