Don't Let Adani Drain the Springs
Call Director General Jamie Merrick: 07 3338 9304
While Adani try to bully the Queensland Government into rushing through a half-baked environmental management plan, we’re calling on our leaders to reject Adani’s proposed plans in line with the science.
By calling the Queensland Environment Department, you'll show the strength of public support for a full and proper assessment of Adani's plans. The phone will be answered by a helpful staff member - you should be polite, but firm!
Here are some talking points to help you on the phone...
- State your name and where you live
I’m calling today to ask the Department, and the Director General Jamie Merrick, to reject the draft Adani Groundwater Dependent Ecosystem Management Plan (GDEMP)
I’d like to pass this message on to the Director General along with my name. Are you able to either transfer me across to speak to him, or take my message down in writing?
I'm ringing particularly to ask if the Department will make Adani do the new research recommended by Federal Government scientists on the risks to the ancient Doongmabulla Springs before a decision is made on the management plan.
This requires high resolution seismic surveys and deep water bores to be drilled to fully understand the risks to the Springs. Are you going to require this research to be done?
Finally, let them know why this issue mattes to your personally. You might want to mention that Queensland is currently facing one of its worst droughts in recorded history. And that Adani are currently under investigation for illegally drilling into groundwater at their mine site. Adani can not be trusted to look after Queensland's precious water.
Remember to be polite and thank them for their time!
Call the Queensland Environment Department and ask them to reject Adani's plans until they have all the evidence
