    not that I'm aware of mate I heard they were after contractors to remove all the dead fish before another strike travels down stream killing more fish

    G,day mate

    Yes, i have been following this subject with interest.

    I have had some great times around the area, also have some funny memories to reflect on.

    Sadly and obviously the damage has been done.

    Hopefully all the BS is over, which i doubt?

    I am no GREENIE but in saying that i would like to see this water way as i once remember ALIVE
