MACQUARIE Pipeline opponents vow the fight is not over despite the project getting the green light from the federal government.
The final report is not yet publicly available, but when it is opponents say they will be going through it with a fine tooth comb to look at avenues of appeal.
Orange City mayor John Davis was ecstatic about the news this morning.
"The best part about this decision is delivering water security for the community of Orange," he said.
Updates will follow in the Central Western Daily and on-line with details on the conditions imposed on the project as well as construction plans.
