  • ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Concerns over an application to extract massive amounts of water near Tennant Creek | ABC News” – below is their description.

    The biggest water application ever made in the Northern Territory is on the brink of approval. If it goes ahead, the licence to Fortune Agribusiness to start a large fruit and vegetable farm near Tennant Creek would extract a volume of water half the size of Sydney harbour over 12 years. And this has a hydrogeologist and others saying the NT government needs to do more research.

    In This Story: Northern Territory

    The Northern Territory (aka NT) is a vast federal territory in Australia famed for its Outback desert landscapes. In the arid Red Centre lie the iconic sandstone monolith Uluru (Ayers Rock), the red-rock domes of Kata Tjuta and the sculpted cliffs of Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park.

    Alice Springs is the gateway town to the Red Centre desert.

    The NT covers 1,349,129 square kilometres (520,902 sq mi). It is sparsely populated, with a population of only 245,353.

    The economy is based largely on mining and petroleum, which during 2018–2019 contributed 23% of the gross state product, or $5.68 billion, accounting for 92.4% of exports.

    The capital and largest city is Darwin. The population is concentrated in coastal regions and along the Stuart Highway.
