The article states that a water allocation as low as 25 percent to 30 percent would be beyond catastrophe for Australian inland irrigated regions and those who depend on the Murray River for their water supply for commercial, industrial or domestic use, according to South Australian Wine Industry Association (SAWIA) president John Angove. The president also offered his pessimistic outlook for the wine industry. Angove added the ongoing drought and the water availability scenarios presented for the present growing season were devastating.
