Community consultation session for the proposed Airly Mine extension

Reminder: the second community consultation session for the proposed Airly Mine extension is being held this Sunday, 10 November, 10 am at Glen Alice Community Hall. If it goes ahead, this proposal could have huge implications for our aquifers and waterways. Centennial proposes to use a vast quantity of water for this operation, a big concern as we appear to be heading into another drought period. 

Please attend the meeting if you can and take the opportunity to put your questions to centennial staff. You can fid out more about the Airly project here.
