CSG environment and water information for landholders

Water is an essential part of the coal seam gas (CSG) production process, and CSG operators are subject to strict laws to manage and minimise impacts on natural systems and protect the environment.

The Queensland Government has strict monitoring and compliance regimes in place to make sure CSG companies meet their legal obligations.

This guide gives landholders an overview of the laws and policies governing water and environmental management in CSG operations.
