Drought prone Queensland can’t afford to give 100 billion litres of water* to Mega Mines in the Galilee Basin!
We could be staring down the barrel of another water planning debacle like the Murray Darling Basin!
Tell the Premier to review the Water Licences244 signatures
A new report reveals that Galilee Basin coal mines would take over 100 billion litres of water from creeks and rivers in the region.
Arid Western Central Queensland doesn’t have that amount of water to spare!
We call on you to order a cumulative assessment of water impacts from all planned mines in the Galilee Basin and review all water permits that have already been granted.
PETITION to the Deputy Premier, Independent Planning Commission and Planning Minister Rob Stokes:
We oppose Santos’ Narrabri Gas Project across the Pilliga forest and farmland near Narrabri due to:
- The risk and damage it would bring to the groundwater of the Great Artesian Basin
- The hundreds of thousands of tonnes of salty waste it would produce, with no disposal solution
- The spread of gasfields across the North West region’s farmland that would follow
The fact it would do zero to address high gas prices, in fact it could lock in higher prices.
