Adani has been fined more than $13,000 for polluting wetlands in central Queensland with stormwater during last monht's major rain event.

The flood water released into the Caley Valley Wetlands from the Abbot Point coal point contained almost double the amount of debris allowed under the Port's Environmental Authority.

The Queensland government's Department of Environment and Science this week issued the $13,055 fine to the Indian mining giant, which it said had breached its environmental obligations.
