Draft significant impact guidelines: Coal seam gas submission

DEA applauds the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities for producing guidelines to clarify the implementation of the ‘water trigger’ in association with those industries that have an enormous potential impact on Australia’s water supply and quality.

DEA commends the multi-dimensional, cumulative and indirect consideration mentioned in the Guidelines. In particular we see references to the potential significance to health, cultural, social and environmental aspects of water as grounds for requiring in-depth assessment through the national process. We are also pleased to see reference to the future and not only the present.

DEA agrees that the wider the expertise involved in this process, the safer it is likely to be for the environment and human health.
