Legal setback for Adani on eve of sign-off

The development of Adani’s Carmichael coal mine may be further delayed due to an ‘administrative error’ by the federal government. Adani’s separate proposal to build a 110km water pipeline will have to be reassessed by Environment Minister Sussan Ley and reopened to public comment. This follows the revelation that the Department of the Environment cannot prove that it had considered all of the public submissions it received on the pipeline project. The Queensland Government is slated to make a decision regarding the groundwater management plan for the Carmichael mine on 13 June.
