*Tamboran’s dodgy water practices


Tamboran Resources can’t be trusted with our water. Right now, in the middle of the wet season, Tamboran is using open ponds at risk of flooding to store their toxic frack waste water. Earlier this year, hundreds of dead fish washed up downstream from multiple fracking sites, with heavy metal detected through water testing.

In 2022 they were fined for using 300,000 litres of untreated wastewater to suppress dust ahead of big rains. Contractors came forward to share that they were instructed to keep spraying drill water despite Tamboran knowing it was contaminated. In the same year a bund wall broke at the site during flooding, spilling sediment and potentially toxic chemicals down towards a sacred waterway. Investigations were also launched for what appeared to be the alleged pumping of possibly contaminated water into a cattle breeding paddock.
