Because historical engineering designs and site selection of waste disposal sites in Tasmania rarely considered the potential for groundwater contamination, Mineral Resources Tasmania has undertaken a two-year National Heritage Trust funded project to:

  • identify aquifers vulnerable to pollution
  • examine existing waste disposal operations and assess levels of groundwater contamination
  • publish geological guidelines for the selection of future waste disposal sites in Tasmania
