Come along to a public forum to learn about how Adani’s proposed Carmichael mine will put our land and groundwater at risk.

This opportunity to hear from recognised experts in water management and the coal industry about how coal mines impact on our land and groundwater is not to be missed. We think it is so important that you hear this information, FCA has made this a free event.
