Community workshop - Narrabri Gas EIS and the campaign to save NSW from new Coal Seam Gas!
Now is a critical moment in the campaign to stop the Santos Pilliga Coal Seam Gas project and work towards agreement for no new CSG projects in NSW. Between now and 22 May, the public has an opportunity to submit a formal objection to the gas project in the Pilliga forest.
A small amount of your effort at this time will go a long way to help on this issue.
Join us at the workshop 6 April, 6pm - 7.30pm
Join us at this workshop - organised by The Wilderness Society - to hear from campaigners and locals to understand the key issues and find out how you can help. Having a combination of detailed personal submissions and a large number of form submissions will be critical in demonstrating public opposition to the project.
On the night, you'll be trained and supported to write the most powerful submission possible and we'll be running through how to help generate dozens or even hundreds more submissions. Together, we can stop CSG in the Pilliga once and for all and be on our way to securing agreement for no new gas in NSW.
Santos’ plans for an 850 coal seam gas wells in the Pilliga forest have finally been released to the public. It has taken them over 7,000 pages to try and justify this environmental disaster, but they won’t convince many.
Already this project has caused over 20 toxic spills and leaks including contaminating an aquifer with uranium, and that was during exploration alone!
The project would extract over 35 billion litres of toxic groundwater and drill right through the recharge area of the Great Artesian Basin. It would generate tens of thousands of tonnes of salt waste for which Santos has still offered no waste disposal plans. This gasfield would fragment over 90,000 hectares of the the Pilliga forest, industrialising the largest temperate woodland in eastern Australia.
