  • Large pad with 4 horizontal shale gas wells
  • Plan to be drilled and fracked over 2 years

  • Full scale fracking would overwhelm system
  • Threat to water supply of 6.6 million people
  • Site would use 65% of fracking waste capacity
  • Vast new frac waste disposal system needed
  • Most waste not treatable, would accumulate
  • Site requires over 20,000 vehicle movements
  • Production needs water/waste storage ponds
  • Wake up call for communities to get organised
