Gasfield Free Byron Bay & Northern Rivers

Carrying on the activism from the huge community project of resisting the government backed mining insanity at Bentley NSW in 2015. This page includes posts from 2 FB pages: CSG Free Byron Bay & CSG Free Northern Rivers. – – – The aim of the Gasfield Free Northern Rivers movement is to protect the biodiversity, water resources, agricultural lands and sustainable industries of the Northern Rivers, and the livelihoods and wellbeing of the people who live here, from the impacts of coal seam gas (CSG) and other forms of unconventional gas mining. Our objective is to have the Northern Rivers region declared a CSG and unconventional gas free zone, and for all current licenses and leases that allow such activities to be revoked.

Gasfield Free Byron Shire

A beneficial use approval declassifies waste and turns it into a resource.

We are all familiar with the toxicity of CSG waste BUT like magic, with the stroke of a pen, hazardous waste becomes a saleable product and a product which can "improve pasture".

From:
• CSG drill & production waters
• Raw & treated effluent
• Biosolids
• Organic wastes
• In-situ green waste

Comes:
• Soil conditioners
• Compost
• Top Dressing

If these facilities are unregulated/unmonitored they can easily cause environmental harm. Pathogens can become airborne if materials are not kept 'wet'. Dust can leave the site. Sensitive receptors can be impacted by odour and noise and water/waste can potentially leave the site and enter other surrounding properties.

Metgasco seismic testing at Casino Channel 7 report.

Henderson likens seismic testing to ultrasound in a maternity ward.
