  • This year, floods have devastated landholders in the NSW Central West, inundating millions of dollars worth of crops just as they were ready to harvest.
  • Further down the Lachlan River, western Riverina farmers and environmentalists are rejoicing in the arrival of water to the flood plains and wetlands.
  • It will take weeks for the peak of the recent floods to reach the lower end of the catchment, but its arrival is poised to extend waterbird breeding events over summer.
