Task force to visit Emu Creek
THE Coalition Dams and Water Management Task Group will visit Stanthorpe today to examine the proposal to build a dam at Emu Swamp Creek.
The deputy chairman of the Task Group and Shadow Water Minister Senator Barnaby Joyce is hosting the group on a tour of south-west Queensland.
"In my home town we have been flooded three times in two years. Other areas have been even more impacted by the recent floods," Senator Joyce said.
"It's time to look ahead and show the vision to make sure the next floods are not as damaging."
