Ambre Energy seeks Ipswich recycled water for Felton mine ...

15 August 2009

Ambre Energy yesterday confirmed it was considering building a water pipeline from Ipswich to service its proposed open-cut coal mine and petrochemical plant in Felton.


The company is costing the project, which could supply 1000 megalitres a year to its thirsty operation, 20 minutes south of Toowoomba.

Business development director Michael van Baarle said the option to pipe the recycled water was in “very early days”.

“We have a commercial negotiation going on in respect to another project and that’s how the idea (to access Ipswich supplies) came up,” he said.

“The concept of sending recycled water to Felton has been discussed internally rather than with relevant authorities.”

He said the company did not want to compete with other landholders for ground water.

Here in is what is really going on.
It is and always has been about water for mining.
Royalties for the government and never mind what we the citizens have to pay for our water.

We can not let the government and these big mining companies have their way and destroy good farming land.
There is a fight on and we must all join it if we can.

I wish people on this blog would use some name rather than "Anonymous" - makes it a bit easier to follow threads.

That's for me to know and you to find out.

There are many brave people out here who continue to fight the good fight where the government has a hidden agenda.

"That's for me to know and you to find out." What is this - the 5th grade?
