The NSW Government will introduce tough new rules for coal seam gas exploration licenses – including rigorous community consultation and tighter environmental controls during the approval process.

It seems, however, that the industry still has the green light to continue, and it remains to be seen whether these new processes will give due weight to the effects of coal seam gas mining on water.
