Water reform and mining

THE implications of recent water reforms on the mining industry are explored in the latest edition of Distilled

THE implications of recent water reforms on the mining industry are explored in the latest edition of Distilled, a monthly publication produced by the National Water Commission.

The results of the Australian Government’s Water Reform and Industry – Implications of recent water initiatives for the minerals, petroleum, energy, pulp and paper industries study outlines the key findings of the report which was conducted in May 2007 and explains the implications of water reform on industry.

The study has looked at water requirements of five key industries and the regulatory environment in which they operate.

The National Water Commission has contributed to this study in partnership with the Department of Industry, Tourism and Resources; Minerals Council of Australia; National Generators Forum; Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association; and the Australian Plantation Products and Paper Industry Council.
