I hope the Minister for Environment and Water, Tanya Plibersek, is keeping an account of the volume of water entering South Australia, in the recent major flood event.

It should give NSW and Victoria at least a decade of credit for their requirement to provide environmental flows under the Murray Darling Basin Plan.

Sounds ridiculous, not as ridiculous as wanting to increase the volume of Murray Darling water, currently evaporating in the Alexandrina and Albert lakes.

Perhaps this flood will also save two or three weeks dredging in the Murray mouth.
