Australian town RUNS OUT of water -

Excerpts from article:

...A drought-ravaged town has run out of water just weeks after a Chinese company was given the go-ahead to run a commercial water extraction facility in the region.

...We will now move to full-time water carting to provide water to the Stanthorpe Region.

...Despite the water importation, the 80-litre restriction will remain in place - four times less than the average individual water consumption of 340 litres per day according to Riverina Water.

...Mr Todd told the Courier Mail he had installed a new water tank and shipped water in about five months ago.

...In a cruel twist, those living in Stanthorpe and Warwick to the north saw their water restrictions cut to 80 litres per person just one day after the water mining approval.
