Qld election - LNP say no to recycled water in dams ...

Has the Deputy Opposition Leader gone a bit beyond her brief in ducking questions from the Deputy Premier ...

Mr Lucas and Ms Simpson were guest speakers at a Gold Coast Combined Chamber of Commerce lunch yesterday and locked horns over their differing recycled water policies.

Mr Lucas challenged his counterpart to name a trigger-point for when the LNP would put recycled sewage into drinking supplies.

"We don't go anywhere near the dams," said Ms Simpson.

"The fact the State Government even got Queensland to the point where it's sitting on the edge of armageddon is a disgrace."

When pushed by Mr Lucas about when recycled water would be considered, she retorted: "We are not planning armageddon, we are planning to ensure good sources of water."

See - - LNP say they're not planning armageddon.

I would say that all you have to do is ask them.
They have already stated in pamphlets that they want to use it for industry and some agriculture.

But they also say they will put it into drinking water as a last resort. Fiona Simpson strayed a bit from the script in her comments.

Recycled sewerage water for drinking is a bit of a poisoned chalice for any party. The American Indians have a saying when someone is being deceitful. It is "He speak with forked tongue' and I guess this is applicable to politicians on both sides in regard to recycled water.Why not ask the Greens?They are always talking about pristine environment. They always side with the Labor Party anyway so I guess recycled sewerage for drinking would not bother them. It bothers 62% of the people though.

Maybe they are hearing that the communities do not want them to use processed sewage at any point.
