  • The Coalition Government is delivering $8 million for water infrastructure improvements in the Great Artesian Basin for two years to 2018–19.
  • This funding will help continue the delivery of important water infrastructure upgrades, by capping free flowing bores and replacing inefficient open bore drains with modern piped reticulation systems.
  • The Coalition Government will continue to work with state governments, industry and communities to develop an enduring partnership model for supporting Great Artesian Basin water infrastructure improvements into the future.

The Coalition Government is contributing to regional development and economic growth by providing an additional $8 million for water infrastructure upgrades across the Great Artesian Basin for two years to 2018–19.

According to the EIS, around 37.5 gigalitres of water would be extracted from the target coal seams over the life of the project. Water production is generally not consistent over the life of a CSG well, but much greater volumes are extracted during the first few years, with significant declines thereafter.
The EIS describes the quality and management of produced water in Chapter 7. Somewhat unhelpfully, the salinity of the produced water is described in terms of electrical conductivity (in units of microSiemens per centimetre), rather than an actual salt concentration (in units of mg/L). It is stated that the average salinity is around 14,000 microSiemens per centimetre. The EIS states that “this level of salinity is approximately 30 percent of the salinity of seawater, which is around 50,000 microSiemens per centimetre”.
