It's sickening just to think about it, and they had the audacity to fine some people and not others ? in any other circumstances when would you cop a fine there ? never that's when.. that's my say.

The power station was privately owned, the government wouldn't have had any idea until the announcement was made.


I don't believe that for a nanosecond, liters, there are checks and balances required by government, forward reporting is mandatory for future supply such as essential services being one, I'm not a conspiracy theorist but all this looks very dodgy to me considering the scope of whats happened.

Good to see myself and Paul Worstleing get a mention aka illegal Anglers and the 1st 80cm is a bit misleading and inaccurate.

"When the fishery was first opened, the recommendation was to eat no more than three serves of the barramundi per week.
But new guidelines around consuming chemicals ... saw that revised down to one serve per week for adults and one serve per fortnight for children"

Did fishos actually eat the fish caught there? Dunno that I'd be terribly interested in eating fish taken from water that's been circulating through a coal fired power station, and more or less under smoke stacks. Gotta die of something I guess tho...

I wouldn't eat fish out of there
Hazelwood pumped out 100's of 1000's of tonnes of "really bad stuff " per annum
There must be a clean way of using coal, we have virtually an unlimited supply

People eat imported crap, so it wouldn't be much different to the conditions some of that comes from.

“Really bad stuff” Trace metels from the pipes.

There is carbon capture technology unfortunately this will never be used at Hazelwood and the other stations don’t have pondages.
