Well, with September being our driest September on record, October is heading the same way.
Nothing depresses me more than seeing our grass turn brown by October, our traditionally wettest month. Our local councils do precious little to save our public gardens and nature strips. Our state government does precious little in the short term to help.
The State's answer is an energy hungry desalination plant and a pipe to take water from the north of the state where they are more affected by drought than we are.
Meanwhile, our sewerage water just flows out to sea after being treated and our stormwater just flows down the drains and into the sea also.
Blessington Street Gardens used to be so beautiful, but I left there after a quick walk through today even more depressed. Rain Man had been switched off, there was very little water in the pond and what was there looked foul.
Best I stick to bitumen, concrete and the sea when I am out and about.
