Dear Minister, please intervene in the NT Government's decision to allow millions of litres of toxic mining waste from the abandoned Mt Todd Mine to be pumped directly into the Daly and Edit River systems without treatment.
Why is this important?
The Daly and Edit Rivers are significant rivers in the top-end. They are relatively untouched by farming and mining, and are a strong tourism drawcard. the current proposal is to pump millions of litres of cadmium affected acid water - with a PH of 1 - directly into the river during the wet season. This waste will be pumped untreated directly into the river travel hundred of kilometres before it reaches the ocean. This waste needs to be - at the very least - treated and heavy metals removed - before any option can be considered.
