Friday SEQ speaker confirms what we always knew

Excellent talk on Friday from Jeremy Bishop from SEQ water on the infrastructure and issues facing the Sunshine Coast with regards to water. With some amazing graphics called the "Realities of Rain" and an entertaining style we were led through the water cycle and found out why we are possibly facing drought restrictions as early as November / December. The challenges facing the water infrastructure caused by the attractiveness of the coast and visitor growth were probably well understood, but what was interesting was the differences in water consumption by location. 
 
The largest consumers / per head of water are in Canberra - probably all those pollies washing their hands of any issue that comes their way. Perhaps not surprising was the fact that the largest water consumer on the coast are those dirty people up in Noosa who are obviously spending a lot of time in the shower/ jacuzzi trying to get themselves squeaky clean.
