Some areas of Australia are seriously affected by drought.
So much so that some farmers have stopped cows grazing on grass and moved them onto grain.
Queensland’s Toowomba is one area hit by such problem. But now the government is looking into water recycling:
“The federal Member for Groom and federal Industry, Tourism and Resources Minister, Ian Macfarlane, will meet with mayor Dianne Thorley this afternoon to discuss the possibility of a plant for the city.
Mr Macfarlane says an advanced treatment plant and a new dam are essential elements in the solution to Toowoomba’s water crisis.”
