What are the risks to groundwater?

The protection of water supplies is an absolute priority. All of our operations and equipment are designed and managed to provide multiple layers of protection to potable aquifers and groundwater. We design our equipment and operating standards to meet or exceed the highest management controls required by industry regulation and Ministerial conditions.  This practice will continue in the future.

Additionally, the Department of Water and the Water Corporation have over 100 water monitoring wells within Exploration Permit 408.
