Licence conditions for pollution studies and reduction programs

Licence number: 4435
Title: Pollution Reduction Study (PRS) 14 - Validation of modelling that predicts groundwater resurfacing
Start date: 22 Sep 2016
Licence Condition
Background Modelling investigations by the licensee have identified that a groundwater height of 2.95 m AHD at monitoring bore 153 may indicate groundwater resurfacing. The licensee has conducted a number of investigations that indicate this groundwater should not contain human viruses. The EPA added a Pollution Reduction Study as an extra precaution to prevent impacts on the oyster industry nearby.  This PRS requires validation of the modelling.  Deliverables The licensee must validate the modelled groundwater resurfacing locations and levels and implement a groundwater resurfacing response protocol with the NSW Food Authority.  The licensee must provide a report to the EPA with the findings of these investigations by no later than 3 September 2021.
