Fullerton Cove residents must wait another day to find out if their court action against the coal seam gas project by Dart Energy is successful. The Land and Environment Court will rule on whether Dart Energy’s project should be halted pending a full legal challenge.

However, the matter is last on the Land and Environment Court’s daily list and is expected to run over into tomorrow.

The matter is following concerns that have been raised over the lack of research to
support the company’s claims that groundwater won’t be affected by the pilot
wells involved in the project.

The Fullerton Cove Residents Action group is challenging the legality of Dart Energy’s coal seam gas project under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act. Residents are seeking an injunction order from the court to prevent further work on the project until the case has been heard.
