Environment Centre NT have drafted a submission that you can send straight to Water Resources, Minister Moss and Chief Minister Fyles in regards to the Georgina Wiso Water Allocation plan ('Beetaloo' Water Allocation Plan).
Despite the risks to tourism, pastoralists, and Territory communities, the government is forging ahead with its plan to allocate billions of litres of water from the Cambrian Limestone Aquifer by declaring a water allocation plan in the Beetaloo Basin to comply with gas industry timelines.
Water allocation plans should be informed by the best available science, comply with the National Water Initiative, and be subject to proper public scrutiny – this plan does not implement these things.
Submissions are due 16 December 2022
Make sure you email your submission to:
