CLEANING UP THE RIVER NENT
The Environment Agency are developing schemes to clean up the River Nent by reducing the amount of zinc in the river . The mine water discharges contribute to the zinc content of the river. The impact of these schemes on the mines is not yet fully understood. Will the historical features be damaged?, will access be reduced or curtailed? where will the treatment plants be sited? – these questions are not completely answered.
Find out more and contribute to the discussion at the next Public participation events on two days in March. On both days there will be an “Open House” from 1400 to 1700 hrs – with a chance to speak to the EA and Coal Authority teams, and public workshops from 1800 to 2000hrs.
