On 26 December 2016 The Sydney Morning Herald reported:
The Baird government has approved the expansion of the most aggressive coal mine in the Special Areas of Greater Sydney's catchment despite not knowing the compounding impact it will have on water supplies. Approval was granted despite South32 commissioning a report on groundwater impacts in 2012 -- when it was seeking the go-ahead for the five excavation lines -- but then declining to make the findings available even to the government.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern science and government systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
The nod for the latest expansion also came even though the Planning Department hired an independent expert to review methods for estimating the height of so-called drainage zones above coal extractions, but is yet to get the results. ...
According to the NPA, the mid-range estimate is equivalent to about 10 per cent of the total daily supply taken from the Avon, Cataract, Cordeaux, and Woronora reservoirs. . . .
'It's outrageous that a mining company can withhold information relating to our Special Areas,' said Dr. Peter Turner, NPA mining projects officer.
