How the Tasmanian dams case bound by the Koowarta case?
This is a question that needs to first asses the concept of precedent. Precedent is the concept that when a decision is made it forms judge made law by which the courts lower in the hierarchy must follow. However, because these two cases were heard in the same court of paramount importance ( the High Court) It was not bound to follow those precedents set earlier in the Koowarta case. This also allows for social change to be factored into decisions and allow the law to be as effective as possible.
when excess of water enters the reservoir or dams due to waterfall or any other reason, the dams then are bound to give out their water in the river in case not to break the walls of the dam. This causes an uprise or upliftment of the river water which then enters the villages and henceforth causes floods.
Dams trigger tiny earthquakes as the ground under the reservoir adapts to the great weight of water added to it. There is no indication that these are causes of large earthquakes. Massive dams like Hoover Dam or Grand Coulee would have triggered huge earthquakes if this was the case. The largest killer earthquakes generally occur in places with no large dams.
Yes the high court can declare a law to be invalid only after fair trial and the reasoning behind such a move is that the decree is unconstitutional to Australia. The best example of this case of Tasmania v The Commonwealth, better known as the Tasmanian Dams Case. In this case the Commonwealth implemented legislation preventing the construction of the Franklin Dam. Tasmania contested this law in the High Court saying that it was unconstitutional…

big dams: big dams have become a matter of controversy. a large number of people are displaced when their homes and villages have to be submerged to creat big dams. small dams:as the work remains suspended,the costs escalate.it gets its support from non government organizations.small dams mayset up in seismic zones.
