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
Shoes painted with traditional motifs are worn by Barkindji elder Patricia Doyle as she walks through her garden drinking a cup of tea made from boxed water 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."
