Centennial Coal has lodged a proposal to continue for two more years its discharge of mine water from the Springvale Mine to Sawyers Swamp Creek and then the Coxs River -
see Colong Foundation's draft submission.
Please make a submission before midnight Tuesday Feburary 28, 2017.
Additional points you may wish to add to your submission:
The Springvale mine must not be allowed to dump up to 32 ML/day of mine water into the Coxs River which is part of Sydney's drinking water supply.
The Coxs River is not a drain for mine water containing lead, cobalt, chromium III and Mercury. The river must be restored to health, because it flows through the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.
