To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives assembled in parliament:

The petition of certain residents of the States of New South Wales and Victoria, including electors of the Divisions of Farrer and Indi, draws to the attention of the House that a Draft Management plan has been presented for consideration by QED for Goulburn Murray Water to the people of Mulwala, Bundalong and Yarrawonga. The residents of the area are concerned about the work being carried out without enough public consultation.

The Lake Mulwala Management Plan and the Living Murray strategy will have severe economic and social impact on the local communities in this region.

Your petitioners therefore request the House to insist the Government impose a moratorium on all work being carried out on and around Lake Mulwala until the Lake Mulwala Management Plan and the Living Murray Strategy have been adopted by the people in their entirety.
