image for Queensland school runs out of water as commercial bottlers harvest local supplies

The Tamborine Mountain state school has run out of water, even as water miners in the Gold Coast hinterland are sending millions of litres to commercial bottling operations.

Trucks sent by the Queensland government carrying emergency supplies to the school, including Mount Tamborine bottled water, have been passing trucks heading in the opposite direction taking local water to bottling plants for beverage giants such as Coca-Cola.

Water miners in the Mount Tamborine area supply roughly 130m litres of water each year to commercial bottling operations.

“We had an award ceremony at the school yesterday and earlier in the day [the school] sent out an SMS about the water situation.

The Scenic Rim council has responsibility for monitoring the commercial water miners and ensuring they comply with their development conditions.

“There is no legal recourse for council to require water suppliers to provide additional water for local use. »

Separately, the speaker of Russia's upper house of parliament said Russia could create an alternative to the Olympics.
