The Waikato District Council has issued a health notice to residents living within three kilometres of Puke Coal’s construction and demolition landfill in Pukemiro, where a fire has been burning since August.
The dioxin warning is a precautionary measure and the number of people the notice affects is low, with a total of 212 households within the buffer zone. Abatement notices have been issued to the landfill owner in relation to breaches of the Resource Management Act.
What extra precautions do you think should be introduced to prevent another environmental incident like this happening again?
