The Alexandrina Council which is the council that covers Hindmarsh Island, towns and district around the Lakes and Goolwa have taken a pro-active stand about the lack of water and how it is affecting the communities and business about the Murray River situation.

They have launched an ‘Impact of Drought and low water Levels’ website that has a wide range of items and comment on it from farmers, businesses, scientists and ordinary people etc.

Also of interest is a video by National Geographic on the impact of the low water conditions in the Coorong and the implications of this on the RAMSAR Convention agreement.
