Mangrove Mountain groundwater monitoring

In response to the Newcastle Disease Virus poultry emergency at Mangrove Mountain on the Central Coast Plateau in 1999, poultry carcasses and shed materials were buried in three containment pits.

A project commenced in 2001 comprising three to four monitoring bores surrounding each pit to monitor potential impact from the sites on groundwater quality.  Routine project activities may also include:

  • Landfill gas monitoring;
  • Design, installation and supervision of maintenance works; and
  • Decision-support for impact mitigation options.
