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
