What we did

Water that has been purified and then injected back into coal seam gas wells may be the irrigation water of the future.

Our story, entitled Restoring coal seam gas water to ancient underground rocks for future use, explains how researchers sought to find out if there were any environmental impacts from large-scale injection of treated water resulting from coal seam gas production.

We read the journal article, interviewed Dr Sreekanth Janardhanan, wrote the story, sourced images and sought approvals.

The story was published in CSIRO’s ECOS blog in September 2015.
