News fragment from 1967

Irrigation has brought new life to Australia. Some of the irrigation water is pumped directly from the river, some of it is running in man-made channels running a hundred and eighty miles long. Wheels keep the water level up. The wheels also measure the water that is going to each property, which is then sold by the acre-foot.
