Mining

Mining

Mining is a significant community issue and an important focus for WaterNSW. There is a long history of coal mining in the catchments and, in recent years, coal seam gas has been an emerging issue.

Mining activities have the potential to affect:

  • the quantity and quality of surface and groundwater in the drinking water catchments
  • water supply infrastructure
  • the ecological health of the Special Areas.
