Northern Bowen Basin Water & Salt Management Practices - Bowen Basin (QLD)

This project investigated water management practices in Bowen Basin coal mines. The project identified leading practice and showed that by implementing water reuse the industry could save 70% of freshwater use without any compromise of flotation or product. This project became the basis for the development of the MCA/CWiMI Water Accounting Framework.
