WATER IMPACTS OF THE ADANI COAL MINE- April 3 2018- 

If built, the Adani coal mine will:

  • Suck out at least 270 billion litres of groundwater over the life of the mine.

  • Put aquifers of the Great Artesian Basin at risk.

  • Dump mine polluted wastewater into the Carmichael River.

  • Threaten ancient springs and 160 wetlands that provide permanent water during drought.

  • Leave behind 6 unfilled coal pits that will drain millions of litres of groundwater, forever.

Adani’s associated water licence allows unlimited access to groundwater for 60 years for free.
