OFF Activities Talks

Long Wall Mining in Sydney Water Catchment

On 27 April 2020  Aquatic Ecology Specialist Catherine Cunningham from Sydney Water shared her knowledge of long wall mining within Sydney’s water catchment areas and the potential impact on drinking water supply infrastructure. This is very timely as the NSW Government has recently approved the extension of coal mining under the Woronora reservoir.

Please note: Due to technical difficulties on the night of our first Zoom meeting the recorded video and sound start on Slide 14 of 41 headed “Sampling – Macroinvertebrates and Diatoms” of the presentation. To view the first 13 slides of Catherine’s presentation (without commentary) please go to the pdf copy of her presentation. OFF apologises for any inconvenience.
