The Federal Greens have continued their push to expand existing environmental flows for the Murray-Darling draft plan to 4,000GL, describing the current 2,750 GL in the draft as an inadequate measure to maintain the long term viability of the river system.

\"Since the draft plan was released in November, the Greens have been the only party which has consistently stood up for South Australians to demand it be improved,\" Greens\' water spokesperson and South Australian Senator, Sarah Hanson-Young, said.

\"All my fellow federal MPs from South Australia told a gathering in Canberra last week that they loved the Murray, but I don\'t hear them complaining about the reduced amount of 2,750 GL the draft plan will return to the environment.\"
