The Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) has released Straits
Salt's Environmental Review and Management Plan (ERMP) for a twelve
week consultative period which ends 26 February 2007. This Campaign
is aware of great concern among scientists and key stakeholders
with regard to the various proposals contained in the ERMP. We anticipate
a range of high quality submissions which will point to the great
inadequacies of Strait's proposals and commitments, as well as to
commitments that should have been made but weren't.
It will be critical during the ERMP submissions phase for you to
make your own submission. We have made this easy for you by providing
a pro-forma submission to which we encourage you to add your own
comments. If you wish to do this, the Halt the Salt brochure contains
a range of argument that you could draw from.
Alternatively, for the very dedicated, you can have a go at picking
the flaws in the ERMP which can be accessed on Straits Yannarie
Solar website, http://www.yannariesolar.com.au/default.asp?V_SITE_ID=3,
via our links facility.
As we analyse the ERMP over the next month we will put various
concerns and issues on this site.
