Water Corp are providing an information session on projects to reduce wastewater seepage from Broome South Wastewater Treatment ponds. The Roebuck Bay Working Group handed a letter to Minister Davies on Sept 28, 2016 to request the relining of all holding ponds (primary, secondary, tertiary) at Broome South Waste Water Treatment Plant – as a high priority – to halt the seepage of nutrients into Roebuck Bay.
The presentation is Tuesday Nov 29, 5.30-7.30pm. This is an important issue for Roebuck Bay’s water quality and marine ecology, so ask any questions you have at the presentation.
Roebuck Bay Working Group is comprised of Traditional Owners and government, local community, conservation groups and business. We work collaboratively to solve issues, raise awareness and encourage research and monitoring which supports responsible management and protection of Roebuck Bay.
