DOC holds Tui Mine clean up consents

The conservation department has been granted the consents as part of the plans to clean up the site.

During the consents hearing, DOC’s East Coast Bay of Plenty conservator Henry Weston said the proposed works were necessary to ensure the long-term safety and security of the Tui Mine site and the community downstream of the tailings dam. The expected improvement in water quality resulting from the works would result in a reduced risk to public health and an improved aquatic environment.

The remediation works are likely to have no more than temporary minor adverse effects on the environment while the works are being carried out.
