Hobart energy problem is damning – they’re out of water
This story is from Tasmanian radio station Heart 107.3 Hobart blog site exposing above critical water levels in main water reserves that includes hydro power generators supplying the apple isle.

Local photographers show the true picture of TAS water reserves
As the announcement came that Basslink had finally found the broken power cable first a sigh of relief, then news that it could still be the middle of June before a resumption of ‘normal’ operations
Tasmania’s Greens are calling on the Energy Minister Matthew Groom to give more guidance to the Tasmanian community with almost 3 months left of energy uncertainty.
Now photographs have emerged of our water reserves that remain to supply hydro power to the state and the pics show the dire situation.
Tassie photographer Matthew Holz told Heart 107.3 that he “went for a trip out to Lake Gordon to see how low the water storage levels were. I was gobsmacked to see how little water was left in the Lake.”

Photographer Mike Peters also reported he visited Lake Pedder and the Gordon Dam. “I managed to take these few photos before a group of chaps in high vis jackets and corporate 4 wheel drives suggested I leave….. I was stunned at the state of these dams. They are effectively empty”
