WAKOOL, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MARCH 10: Adam Lynn and Jed West ride their skateboards under the verandas of abandoned store fronts March 10, 2008 in Wakool, New South Wales, Australia. Wakool is one of many towns that have been hit hard economically by the drought with 0% water allocations. Most farmers here have not had a decent crop since before 2001. The general store has had its earning reduced by over 50% and the number of dairy farm families has been reduced from 17 to 4. The Murray-Darling Basin has been plagued with severe drought since the late 1990s and many growers and policy makers are being forced to find and implement more efficient irrigation systems.
