The likelihood of the volume of fresh water needed to prevent the
lower lakes turning acidic arriving in time appears to be very low.
I may be wrong
but part of the lower Coorong
may already be hypersaline.

Surprised no one has raised this. What do we think of the decision to
flood the lower lower Murray lakes with sea-water to solve the problem
of acid sulphate soils, there being, apparently, too little freshwater
to do the job from above?
Any inaccuracies in my summary above will not doubt be corrected!
