No Water Mining is that like digging big holes in the ground, like open cut coal mining? Is no water mining like fracking our earth so water runs in different directions? If so how would any one suggest to do that to our beautiful Tweed Valley. I say shame on those who would do such a thing, “if this was the case!”
“But it is not” It is a precision hole inserted with a narrow pipe. The word water mining is a term used by those trying to stir up the peoples emotion, as if it was a open cut mine or fracking.
Our Tweed Valley started with “progress” by the likes of Joshua Bray and Samuel Grey.
These 2 Men worked for progress in our Shire they worked towards and shaped our Valley as it is today. Joshua Bray worked so hard for our valley he carried a number of portfolio’s. Joshua was known as the king of the Tweed. Joshua not only was the magistrate he pulled teeth and his portfolio’s went on.
There are numbers and numbers of great pioneers like Joshua and Samuel. George Skinner was another George started the steam boats that made the Tweed River the Highway to Murwillumbah. These guys and more were all about making our Valley progress.
Businesses and business grew in the valley we were blessed with a train in 1894. Besides the hard working timber cutters the dairy industry took off. The Tweed River Butter Co-Op opened in the late 1890’s in Commercial Rd Murwillumbah. North Coast butter Co-Op LTD opened a factory in 1905. Our local sugar industry was flourishing. OK! We can all whinge about the trucks and the machinery on our roads these days but it is progress that made the Tweed Valley.
Is Water Mining Fracking the Ground ?
The progress is continuing like Southport and the Gold Coast. Like every other town in our Australia, the cities catch us up and we can scream and buck and whinge but it’s a fact. I feel sorry for those who bought in the valley in the last years who thought that the Million people over the hill were going to stay up there.
It’s progress it happens it’s all ways happened, like Southport caught up with Beenliegh and Tweed Heads. I read in the local paper the other day about a women that can’t do her exercise down a rural road with her heads phones on because she can’t here the trucks coming.
Yes trucks drive down roads and you can’t walk on roads. In Murwillumbah it is us property owners that have to mow our foot paths a good start would be to talk to the neighbors. Walking around rural properties is great for exercise! and it’s away from exhaust fumes.
No Water Mining is that a big hole in the ground?
I wonder about 1907 when Murwillumbah burnt, the Murwillumbah Holicaust as it was written in our Daily News. Also written was that the town folk all helped, they started the rebuild straight away with in one year the town was rebuilt. Hmm? I wonder how many people in our area would do that these days ? The building owners in the main street also donated 5 feet of their frontage so as the street could be widened. Read more here
At a resent Council meeting in Murwillumbah I was a shamed of some of the local residents. The topic of decision was water extraction in our area. A spokesman was giving his findings on the facts of water extraction when he was outspokenly ridiculed by members of the public. The spokesman offered council facts concerning water extraction.
It was smart of council
It was smart of council to ask for further information from NSW Water. But what I didn’t see was any of the hecklers come up with any real facts nor address council. This has always been a concern of mine I see images of trucks and buses going over white lines but I never see any scientific facts against water extraction. I have asked this question can anyone tell me where a tree has died or a blade of grass?
If you have a photo of dead area from water extraction you can show photo’s in the comment section on this page.
Why say no water Mining? Water extraction on large scales is not new. Bottled water has graced our shops for many many years. George Skinner started a cordial and aerated water factory in north Tumbulgum in 1880. His business moved to Murwillumbah and continued until the mid 1900’s.
E J Fackerell started his aerated water factory in South Murwillumbah in 1902 later sold to H W Dunn in 1919. H W Dunn sold the factory to P Clifford in 1926 he sold it to Lindsay Monroe in 1958.
In 1916 a Tweed Shire councilor, Cr P. McMahon bragged to a local paper about “the always cool and sweat underground water that supplied the butter factory”. It was also written that the old Norco Butter factory where IGA is had a 70 Ft bore that supplied the factory. Think about that where did they get their water from and how much water does it take to supply a butter factory. There is no negative environment impact in that area from water extraction.
“Let Murwillumbah live,”
Go for a drive to Tamborine mountain on a weekend or Eumundi north coast. Why isn’t Murwillumbah reaping the rewards of having a million people over the hill. Lets face it 12 O’clock Saturday every one hides in case the Queenslanders see us. The town shuts down and if one of those 1 million people come to our main street on their week end drive they don’t stop.
It is time to stop saying no! let Murbah live. The weekend trade from the Gold Coast will help our local businesses. This link is a little thing I’ve done to try and show the Gold Coast Week end Drive our town.
I feel so strongly for our business community and I have advertised their businesses free of charge for the last 8 years.
If the Hecklers really cared about our area they’d be doing things to push for growth in our area all I here is them whinge about every thing. Do you know what I really think. People who say they are Greens try to make out they are the only ones that care about the environment. “Hello” your not special we all care about our environment. Don’t pretend you are the only one’s, I know that may make you feel good but “OY” We all care.
