Anna Bligh authorises friendly investigation of SEQ contaminated water ...

On the fluoride contamination investigation:

Ms Bligh said Mark Pascoe, CEO of the International Water Centre based in Brisbane, will run the investigation.

Who is the International Water Centre?

The IWC is a joint venture of four premier Australian universities - The University of Queensland, Griffith University, Monash University and The University of Western Australia. Our universities are internationally recognised leaders in teaching and research. IWC partners are Healthy Waterways Partnership and International Riverfoundation. The IWC is supported by the Queensland Government.

See - International Water Centre.

Any familiar faces?

The IWC Board is made up of the Deputy Vice-Chancellors of the four IWC member universities, and representatives from IWC partners Healthy Waterways Partnership and International Riverfoundation.

Chair - Professor Paul Greenfield, AC

Professor Greenfield is Vice-Chancellor of the University of Queensland.


See - IWC - Prof. Greenfield.

Isn't he on Anna Bligh's QWC advisory team?

Indeed he is.


So if there are problems with Anna's 'not-so-purified' recycled water and Anna Bligh calls in the IWC for an 'independent' review, it will be Anna Bligh asking Prof. Greenfield to investigate himself?

At least he should be able to respond in a timely manner ...

How could Prof. Greenfield be independent in any investigation on a water problem because his grant money for his part of the University comes from vested interests?

It's a nice cosy club where everyone piles up the consulting fees ...
