Darling River irrigators begin to pull out winegrapes to save water

For the third time in 12 years the Darling River in south western New South Wales has run dry. Block banks have been placed across the river to hold up water for irrigators with permanent plantings and high security licenses. But now irrigators around Pooncarie are being forced to turn off water to citrus trees and wine grape vines to save the precious water that is left in the river for other crops.
