Thanks for the pics Ice storm.

The Spring of 2005 was the last time it was full so really not all that long ago but feels longer than that cos the past 4 years have been extremely dry.

Heres the link Jane in Late October 2005 which tells us it was full. Notice also Sugarloaf our 4th biggest dam was full too? Both these dams were last full in October 2005

The Government flagging the idea of possibily easing water restirtcions in Melbourne which will be a BAD BAD IDEA! Giving alot of people the wrong sense of security that things are alot better when in reality there not!
This time Last year the dams were around 34% in 2007 they were around 39% and we had just got on the 3A water restrictions that same year which started in May so why possibily even think about lifting them now when were at 38%?? Plain stupidity to me it defeats the purpose in going to 3A to begin with in 2007 when dam levels were very similar to what they are now

Seriously? They can't even think about lifting the restrictions yet. Very stupid idea. I don't know about everyone else, but we are still in a very severe drought and have a long long way to go. 1 or 2 months of above average rainfall does not end it..

They will do that so that they can charge the same for money, sort of like off loading all the surplus until the desalination plant goes online that they can make as much money off the water in the dams before the non stop supply comes online.

Labour is a corrupt government!!!

Agreed. Vote them out next year.

At least Kennett had balls and from what I've read proposed to build a dam at the Mitchell before Bracks quashed that from happening ten years ago.

Liberal are far, far worse than Labor when it comes to environment and social policy, plus they don't support basic services like schools and public transport etc. but fully support any project that fills the coffers of the wealthy elite. Greens is the only suitable alternative IMO. The current Labor government IMO is only slightly 'less Liberal' than the Kennett government was, a lot of the policies atm, particularly concerning planning and the environment are very 'right wing'.

Still, each to their own and certainly don't want to start a heated political debate on here. We are here to discuss weather of course.
