Stopping the Big Mine Water Grab

Stopping the Big Mine Water Grab

Thanks to community pressure, the Qld Government is pulling back from the worst of its plans to give mining companies a legal right to the unlimited take of associated groundwater.

There is no reason why mining giants should get a special deal on water.

But despite winding back some of the worst aspects of its plan, the Qld Government hasn’t gone far enough.

Final changes are needed to make this a better outcome for landholders and the environment.
