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.
Our drinking water, our rivers and even our World Heritage areas are threatened by longwall coal mining in the greater Sydney region.
Right now, South32, Wollongong Coal and Hume Coal are all pushing ahead with proposals for new coal mining inside Greater Sydney’s water catchment.
On top of that, Peabody Coal have applied to explore for more coal near Woronora Reservoir.
It’s time that Premier Berejiklian declared Sydney's drinking water catchment a no-go zone for coal mining.1,376 signaturesAdd signature
