Wastewater disposal confirmed

WASTEWATER CONCERN: Limestone Coast Protection Alliance member Cate Cooper says liquid from any gas mining operation should never be irrigated onto pasture.

BEACH Energy has confirmed drilling mud and liquid effluent from its conventional drilling site north of Mount Gambier has been trucked to Portland for disposal.

This follows questions flowing from the region’s anti-gas mining fraternity whether liquid from the Haselgrove-3 conventional well will be irrigated onto agricultural land.

Anti-gas mining activists have previously raised concerns regarding Beach irrigating wastewater from its Jolly 1 rig site on farmland near Penola.
