Adani Infrastructure’s North Galilee Water Scheme (NGWS) Project (June 2020)

Despite ongoing public pressure, missed deadlines and lack of secure funding, Adani is pushing ahead with their plans to build Australia’s largest coal mine in the Galilee Basin. Their latest bid is to extract yet more water – from the Suttor River via the North Galilee Water Scheme – without a full environmental assessment. This water would potentially be used for other coal mines in the area, and the Suttor River feeds into the major river system going to the Great Barrier Reef. DEA put in a submission to Adani’s North Galilee Water Scheme Project to have this project fully scrutinised both for its health and environmental impacts.
