Protesters opposing a coal seam gas wastewater plant in northern NSW aren't giving up their cause any time soon.
Around 30 anti-CSG demonstrators blocked access on Wednesday morning to the Santos Leewood Water treatment plant in the Pilliga forest south of Narrabri, which will support 850 CSG wells above the Great Artesian Basin.
Sixth-generation farmer Neil Kennedy from Coonamble has chained himself by the neck to the site's front gate, despite heavy rain turning the ground to mud.

The 73-year-old admitted he was "getting a bit old for this", but he doesn't want to see the land destroyed for future generations.
