E-M:/ Dioxin Remediation



Visit www.rhodesnsw.org for a lot of information about the remediation of
dioxin contaminated sites to be used for high density residential
development.

There is an Environmental Impact Study available covering the proposed
remediation, but it the pdf files are too large to email.

I attach a text file with a list of contents of the EIS (
meritoneiscontents.txt ) If the attachment isn't allowed by the list email
me for a copy.

You may purchase a copy of the EIS: Reference DA-233-7-2002-i Location
former Allied Feeds site at 42 Walker Street, Rhodes Peninsula hardcopy or
on CD-ROM) from: PlanningNSW (20 Lee St, Sydney, 9762 8044) for AUD27.50
(AUD11.00 for CD-ROM) (including GST, plus postage and handling).

You can view the executive summary (which is more like a public relations
document) by downloading from:

http://www.planning.nsw.gov.au/onexhibition/execsumm_rhodes.pdf

It is 2.5 megs of pdf. Make sure you have the full URL if it doesn't appear
to be working.

Hope this helps.
