Hi John and Water Bloggers

I am an Australian lawyer and specialise in water law and water management. I have completed my Doctorate in law on Australian Water Law which includes comparisons to the US, Canada and New Zealand. There are many issues surrounding the government not providing sufficient grant funding to rural and regional water users, especially Indigenous Australians who have poor services to water; some communities have 1 tap for their town to use and other rural towns have the use of river or creek water and run down infrastructure.
As the drought in Australia has been going on for many years there is still under funding for community use.
