James ‘Dude’ Kidd, 50, watches as h2o from new rains slowly but surely operates up a gulley on his land out of seven mile channel, coming off the Cooper river. The water only runs as a result of the property occasionally and brings critical moisture to the land. A grazier, Kidd’s home is overlapped by 1 of the output leases of Origin Power that is waiting around for acceptance with the Queensland authorities. Ourdel station, Windorah, Queensland.
