A scientific inquiry in the Northern Territory has made recommendations for the sustainable management of surface and groundwater resources, and to mitigate environmental, social, cultural and economic risks associated with hydraulic fracturing for onshore shale gas, where possible, to acceptable levels. This means that the quality of the water should not be affected to the extent that it can no longer support human drinking, agriculture, stock watering or aquatic ecosystems, in accordance with the relevant Australian drinking water and water quality guidelines.
