Metgasco Limited admits it's going to drill into NSW North Coast aquifers

I understand the concerns, and I know we're talking about drilling through aquifers to reach the gas, but everyone can be confident any future operations will be managed in a prudent, careful manner...[Metgasco Limited Chairman Nick Health, The Daily Examiner,19 September 2013]

Rather strangely the APN Parliament House Press Gallery journalist Daniel Burdon, who wrote the article, did not explore Metgasco’s open admission of an intent to pierce underground water storages and potentially contaminate or destroy these water reserves.

If he is going to report on the Northern Rivers he needs to actually research the issues. Such a shallow piece will win him no respect locally.
