Kopeopeo Canal Clean Up

EnviroWaste's proud to be part of this remediation project, to clean up dioxin-contaminated sediment in the Kopeopeo Canal.

The Canal was contaminated between the 1950s and late 1980s as a result of stormwater discharges from a former sawmill, which treated timber using Pentachlorophenol (PCP).

Take a look at this dramatic night lift of a barge, excavator and other machinery over Keepa Road Bridge in Whakatāne, which marked a smooth transition into the final section of the clean up.  Click here
