Flaring the Whicher Range

LOCAL Fire brigade officer Wally Lord was alarmed to discover in December 2015 that gas wells in the tinder dry forest of the Whicher Range, east of Margaret River were being flared off in the summer season.

After several false call-outs for fire late at night he went to the well pads to investigate.

Wally says he doesn’t think any flaring or gas development should be taking place in the Whicher Range, a priority one drinking water catchment area, at the very least not during times when farmers are on high alert not to cause any fire outbreaks.
