"I also note Minister Price's statement that the project must meet further stringent conditions of approval from the Commonwealth before it can begin producing coal".
But the Adani decision will not help Liberals fighting seats in the south, with strong anti-Adani campaigns in some key electorates.
"India's Adani Enterprises has stepped closer to construction of a thermal coal mine in the Australian state of Queensland after Australia's environment minister said on Tuesday it had approved a groundwater management plan".
She says CSIRO and Geoscience Australia believe the Indian company's revised plans for the way it manages groundwater resources meet scientific requirements.
However, she added that the approval for the project is not final. The Federal and Queensland Governments have only finalised or approved 16 of 25 environmental plans to date.
The mine still needs approvals by the Queensland Labor government before it goes ahead.
"Another explanation could be that she is satisfied by the science but the LNP heavy-handedness. trying to pressure people, now creates a cloud over a process that didn't need to be there", he said.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has publicly rebuked one of his Queensland Senators for threatening the Environment Minister over the Adani coal mine.
"The independent evaluation and endorsement by CSIRO and Geoscience Australia verify that the measures outlined in the plans will ensure groundwater at the mine, and the ecosystems that depend on it, are protected", said Dow in a statement.
"And, importantly, Adani does not have federal approval for the proposed above-ground water infrastructure it requires to support its proposed thirsty coal mine".

Adani hopes to take up to 12.5 billion litres of water - 5000 Olympic-sized swimming pools - from the Suttor River in central Queensland, a river that floods and dries up at different times and on which farmers and wetlands rely.
"Throughout the past 18 months, the Federal Department provided us with certainty of process and timing, including the steps involved in the independent review by CSIRO and Geoscience Australia experts".
The GDEMP has been through 11 rounds of assessment with the Australian and Queensland Governments over more than two years.
