To the Inquiry:

I am a long term Territorian that has worked in the groundwater industry as an analyst for various uranium companies. I understand the complexity and fragility water tables.

There is overwhelming evidence that fracking is destructive to the environment and water table, our water table which is something we are all blessed with and must protect at all costs.

This is an industry that I am ashamed of as an Australian , that we refuse to learn for the rest of the worlds mistakes.

Look at France where the hideous practice is banned. I will fight against fracking the Territory for as long as it takes.
