Leigh Creek

The Hon. J.S.L. DAWKINS ( 14:50 ): A supplementary: will the minister indicate what considerations are being made about the resource that is contained within the reservoir adjacent to the town of Leigh Creek? 

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Employment, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation, Minister for Manufacturing and Innovation, Minister for Automotive Transformation, Minister for Science and Information Economy) ( 14:50 ): Do you mean the retention dam to the south of the mine or the Aroona Dam? 

The Hon. J.S.L. Dawkins: No, I mean the reservoir that feeds the— 

The Hon. K.J. MAHER: The Aroona Dam that supplies the water supply to the town? 

The Hon. J.S.L. Dawkins: Yes. 

The Hon. K.J. MAHER: That is part of the infrastructure audit that is ongoing. The Aroona Dam that supplies the water supply to the town is a resource for that area and that is part of the infrastructure audit that is ongoing, as is the retention dam that stops water flowing into the mine pit at the moment. I know that in years gone by, at that retention dam just to the south of the mine itself, there has been a sailing club set up on the banks of that retention dam. Both that retention dam and the Aroona Dam which supplies the water supply to the town are being looked at.
