Stop Water Mining trucks ruining the Tweed Shire

Black Mount Pty. Ltd, a water carting company has recently applied on behalf of Mount Warning Spring Water to allow 55.5 tonne B-Doubles to replace the currently used, much smaller (but still enormous) tankers.

Because of a trial period, these trucks currently travel through UKI village and Murwillumbah day and night.

This is so water miners can extract more and more groundwater from their property at Kunghur to be put in disposable plastic bottles for profit. There seems to be no monitoring process.

This increase in the size of trucks will have a harmful effect on our communities yet the Tweed Shire Council Traffic Committee recommended that B-Doubles be approved without any development application process or public consultation.

We're ignored as usual
