Chinese company approved to bottle water from drought stricken Queensland

Chinese company approved to bottle water from drought stricken Queensland

Peter Keogh and Ben Usher say they're outraged over a decision to allow a Chinese company to take millions of litres of water from an underground aquifer each year for bottling.

Queensland farmers Peter Keogh and Ben Usher claim their council sold the water from under them without consultation.

While farmers like Ben and Peter are running out of water, only kilometres away Cherrabah Resort will be extracting 96 million litres of water each year to be trucked to the Gold Coast for bottling.

While farmers are being told it won't affect them, just the Cherrabah Resort test pumping has caused Ben's spring to run dry, he claimed.
