The Macquarie Marshes are a welands area of international importance. A 1995 survey has found that the amount of water reaching the Marshes has declined since the building of the Burrendong Dam in 1967. The dam has allowed important farming ventures to develop in the local area including a large cotton growing industry. While environemntalists and farmers are concerned for the health of the Marshes they have differing water needs and conflicting patterns of water usage. In an attempt to create a solution acceptable to all interested parties the Macquarie River Advisory Committee has developed a comprehensive wetland management plan. Local reaction to the plan is discussed. Curriculum area: Geography
