Drought-Affected Aussie Mines Use Train To Carry Water



With drought ravaging much of Australia's east coast, crop growers and livestock farmers are not the only ones who have been hit hard by the lack of rain.

The mining industry Down Under also relies heavily on water to secure its production.

In one particular case around 140 km east of Sydney, the problem has become so bad that operators at coal sites have been forced to freight water by train.
