The study results will help address public concerns regarding potential impacts on groundwater by improving understanding of sub-surface structures and potential fault zones that may act as pathways between target coal seams and shallow aquifers or surface water systems, and by helping to further improve the accuracy of future groundwater models in the Narrabri region.

Using a combination of different geophysical methods and environmental tracers this study will assess the continuity and performance of aquitards separating shallow aquifers and coal seams within and near the proposed gas project development area south-west of Narrabri.
