THIS week, The Western Star shared a story to Facebook about the possible depletion of water supplies in the Maranoa as a result of coal seam gas production.
Here’s what our readers had to say.
ROYCE PROUD Am pretty sure this was a concern about 10 years ago from primary producers and the mining companies stated the operations they had in plans for the future would not affect the water table, but may be minimal usage for a few operations...
I hope the Parliament is feeling happy with themselves now. Giving power of entry to these companies to enter land and do as they please.
Yes, the surface may be fine, but what they have done under the surface is the issue and not monitored correctly or swept under the rug.
