Our water, Our Lifeblood: Regional Roadshow comes to Townsville!
Water is the lifeblood of Queensland. Regional and farming communities work hard to put food on our dinner table every week -- and they rely on clean water for their survival.
Yet, if built, Adani’s proposed Carmichael coal mine would drain an estimated 270 billion litres of Queensland’s groundwater over the 60 year life of the project.
When more than two thirds of Queensland is suffering from drought, we need to ask ourselves -- what are the real, long term impacts of Adani’s mine on our communities? And how can we ensure our precious water resources are protected for generations to come?
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from farmers and graziers, and experts in water management about how Adani’s coal mine will impact Queensland’s lifeblood.
Join us for a drink and nibbles from 5.30pm. The Forum will kick off around 6pm.
WHAT: Public forum on the impacts of the Adani mine on Queensland’s water hosted by the Lock The Gate Alliance.
WHERE: Seagulls, 74 The Esplanade, Belgian Gardens, Townsville.
WHEN: Friday 13th April, 5.30-7.30pm.
Speakers include eminent water expert Tom Crothers, former General Manager of Water Allocation and Planning with the Queensland Government, and author of the Report “Draining the Lifeblood” about groundwater risks of the proposed Adani Carmichael mine.
More speakers announced shortly.
There will be time for questions and discussion after a short panel.
The forum is free but places are limited! RSVP here to reserve your place today
