$1 BILLION dam project to flood Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area
Keith Muir, Director, Colong Foundation for Wilderness
There is a very good reason that large dams have not been built in NSW for the last 30 years. Dams, by their very nature, have devastating impacts on the natural environment. Inundation of protected areas, water starvation of downstream ecosystems and cold-water pollution of waterways are just some of the many environmental impacts dams have.
