Jurisdiction: Australia


Side A: Alanvale Pty Ltd (Corporation)


Side B: Southern Rural Water Authority (Government)


Core objectives:

Application to overturn government decision to not grant license for groundwater extraction on basis of climate variability


Summary
Alanvale Pty Ltd challenged the Southern Rural Water Authority's decision to deny licenses for groundwater extraction. The Tribunal held that the Southern Rural Water Authority's claim that there was a risk in over-allocating the groundwater supply was substantiated by the possibility of rainfall being scarce as a result of climate change.
