The Wider Image: Thirst turns to anger as Australia's mighty river runs dry
Reduced to a string of stagnant mustard-coloured pools, fouled in places with pesticide runoff and stinking with the rotting carcasses of cattle and fish, the Darling River is running dry. The parched earth of Australia's longest waterway, if tributaries are included, is in the grip of the continent's most severe drought in a century. At Menindee, 830 km west of Sydney, despair has turned to anger as residents blame the government for exacerbating the drought by drawing down river water in 2017 for irrigation and other uses downstream. Locals now avoid using tap water for drinking and washing babies and children, saying it has caused skin irritation, and prefer boxed and bottled water instead.

The Wider Image: Thirst turns to anger as Australia's mighty river runs dry
Sheep and a bird drink from a pool on the riverbed of the Darling River in Menindee, Australia, September 27, 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.

Barkindji elder Patricia Doyle uses boxed water to make a cup of tea at her home in Menindee, New South Wales, Australia, September 29, 2019. At Menindee, 830 km west of Sydney, despair has turned to anger as residents blame the government for exacerbating the drought by draining the river in 2017 floodtimes to irrigate farmland. Locals now avoid using tap water for drinking and washing babies and children, saying it has caused skin irritation, and prefer boxed and bottled water instead. "That was our food source, the river, our water source. That was our livelihood," said Doyle. "When you live on a river and you have to have water brought into your town to drink and survive on, what's that saying? It's saying that our system ... isn't looked after properly."

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. "It's just sad that a place like Australia has to rely on box water to survive, it's ridiculous. A lot of people in the cities take water for granted," Highet said.

"I always think of Australia as the Aboriginal people's own Garden of Eden, and we lived according to that law and rule," Clark said. "Governments should never have taken ownership of water.

The Wider Image: Thirst turns to anger as Australia's mighty river runs dry
Reduced to a string of stagnant mustard-coloured pools, fouled in places with pesticide runoff and stinking with the rotting carcasses of cattle and fish, the Darling River is running dry. The parched earth of Australia's longest waterway, if tributaries are included, is in the grip of the continent's most severe drought in a century. At Menindee, 830 km west of Sydney, despair has turned to anger as residents blame the government for exacerbating the drought by drawing down river water in 2017 for irrigation and other uses downstream. Locals now avoid using tap water for drinking and washing babies and children, saying it has caused skin irritation, and prefer boxed and bottled water instead.
