SAVE BYRRILL CREEK

*******
While the controversy over the re-allocation of water in the Murray-Darling basin is raging, another water drama is unfolding in the New South Wales’ North-East.
On October 19 the local Tweed Council approved the construction of a dam at Byrrill Creek, one of the few rain forest areas left on the Tweed, populated by many flora and fauna endangered species, significant spiritual place to many local aboriginal communities and the home of many deeply concerned residents.
Byrrill Creek residents and many people from the whole Tweed Caldera and adjacent region have now a fight in their hands to stop this environmentally disastrous choice.
Please add your voice to ours. Contribution from other Australian regions and cities and also from oversea will be warmly welcome by the NO DAM IN BYRRILL CREEK ACTION GROUP.

Here are web addresses to different sites discussing the proposed dam, with information of what we can do to stop our local council’s insanity.
Links to articles about the proposed Byrrill Creek’s dam are added as they become available. The most recent are on top of the list.
