At Risk: The Great Artesian Basin

Published: May 18, 2016

Gas drilling and fracking in the Great Artesian Basin puts our water at risk. The Great Artesian Basin (GAB) covers 22% of Australia and is the only reliable source of water across its overlying arid and semi-arid areas for farmers and communities.

Unconventional gas extraction requires drilling into aquifers or right through the Basin! This creates a risk of cross-contamination or depressurisation of the GAB. The greater the number of gas wells, the higher the risk!
