The sun rises over dried up lake Pamamaroo, outside of Menindee, Australia, September 2, 2019. Prolonged drought exacerbated by demands on water resources by irrigators and cities means the Darling River (Barka) is running dry. The towns of Menindee and Wilcannia avoid drinking tap water, relying instead on charity donations of 10-litre boxes of water and rain tank water for potable uses.
