Eastern suburbs community fights for water catchments

Woollahra Council, Climate Action Eastern suburbs and anti coal seam gas group Lock The Gate have organised a series of events in the Eastern suburbs to raise awareness about the threat to the community’s clean water catchments as a result of unsafe mining practices.

“Sydney is fortunate to have one of the best and cleanest natural water supply systems in the world and it must not be ruined by mining toxicity” said Ian Rose, Climate Action Sydney Eastern Suburbs.

“As people in the Eastern Suburbs are concerned about their water quality, Woollahra Council wrote to NSW Parliament calling on them to extend the ‘Residential CSG Protection Act’ to include our drinking water catchments” he said.

The first event will be held on September 4 in Double Bay and will be followed by a second event on September 9 in Paddington.
