This is about the efficiency of the government regulators - response time a decade!

This will seem ironic to RiversSOS die-hards.
Poor little Robyn Parker - looks like she has been kept in the dark all of her life.

When was it that we first heard Ian Wright talking about this?
The Ourimbah meeting I believe.

There have been various announcements since then.

But she needs to be able to deny all knowledge.

She can no longer deny anything on this now.

Cheers

Denis

To:

NSW governments have known for a decade about a major toxic plume in the Georges River south of Sydney from a coalmine owned by BHP Billiton, but have never
pressed the company to stop polluting.
