Letters to the Editor

Northern Daily Leader

After ten years opposition to Santos and Eastern Star Gas efforts to get coal seam gas projects approved, North West NSW farmers respond in alarm to ACCC suggestions that onshore gas should be rolled out in the Pilliga and across farmland. 

While supporting ACCC calls for coal seam gas exports to be curbed for domestic supply, farmers and communities who depend on safe reliable supplies of underground water will not accept any coal seam gas project that puts at risk this valuable resource. 

As extreme drought conditions are being experienced across major parts of NSW, farmers, graziers and rural communities are faced with the worrying prospect of how their water supply will hold up in these conditions.
