Dead carp, 2007

Andrew CHAPMAN, born 1954.


As Australia’s major water storages dry up, state and federal governments come under increased pressure to secure the country’s water supply in the long term. Faced with public resistance to large scale water recycling for household use, several have chosen to build new dams or desalination plants to purify seawater instead. Both options have attracted criticism for maintaining public dependency on high levels of water usage and for their impact on the environment.
