Ash Storage Area

A long term solution for the rehabilitation of the ash storage area has been completed and involves the application of topsoil, seeded with native plants and grasses, which will cover the entire ash storage area. The application of topsoil over the ash is considered the most effective process for the long term management of the area. Site monitoring and management will continue as revegetation of the site continues.

Ash Storage Area Contingency Options

Flinders Power undertook a comprehensive study of methods to improve short-term dust control at the rehabilitation area, while not adversely impacting the long-term revegetation objective.  All applicable controls have been implemented as revegetation continues across the site. The controls continue to be monitored and managed by Cu-River Port.
