After spending 15 odd hours on the Community Experience Survey through the Independent Assessment of Social and Economic Conditions of the Basin, you can imagine the distress caused when I discovered that the work I did had not been saved when I returned the next day to complete it.
Upon calling the Independent Panel in an attempt to find the information I thought was in their online system I was dismayed to find out that as of 21st October only 350 people had completed the online survey.
I know that there are way more than 300 people unhappy with the current conditions of the Murray Darling Basin, so I urge all of you with better computer literacy skills than me to please get online and complete the survey. It would give the Governments so much pleasure if there is a poor response to the survey, but let’s not give them that satisfaction.
I know we are all fatigued and frustrated, especially at the constant refusal of Governments to act on the situation we are currently facing. But I urge everyone not to give up.
The survey needs to be completed by 31st October.
