Still fighting

For the Uki News readers who want to look at the documentation from the article about Mt Warning’s DA refusal:

Here is the Office of the Chief Scientist’s Final Report into the Sustainability of the Bottled Water Industry in the Northern Rivers. Sad to say, they seem to have totally misread it.

Mount Warning’s development application DA19/0346 documentation is on the public record and we have it if you need to read it. Email us if you want any of the material. The new acoustic report is a doozy!

The whole water bottling industry needs undoing

The good news is that on March 19, 2020 the Tweed Shire Council voted to remove water extraction for bottling as an allowable industry in this shire.


Times have changed.

Once Australia was a penal colony, once women were not allowed to vote, once indigenous people were treated as livestock, once equal marriage was just a fairy tale.

Water mining can be wound back and indeed it must be.

These people never give up. 24 hours a day, they truck water out. Private profit at the expense of a community asset.

On July 1 Tweed Shire Council voted to refuse Mt Warning’s DA19/0346, where they wanted to increase their ‘take’ to 150Ml. Watch the council debate below. It’s 34 minutes – get a cuppa and watch your councillors in action.
