Special water rules for mining should go, Productivity Commission says

Special water rights for the mining industry such as those granted to the Adani mega-mine should be scrapped as part of urgent reform to the way water is managed in Australia, the Productivity Commission says.
The Minerals Council of Australia said the provisions
 took into account the "atypical" water needs of
the mining industry.
The commission’s report into national water reform warned that doing nothing or waiting until the next drought “could create a major legacy of future problems”.
