CLIENT: NZ Steel Ltd.

DATE: 1985 - ongoing

 

Bioresearches have been involved in assessing and monitoring the environmental impacts of the steel manufacture at New Zealand Steel’s Glenbrook mill since 1985. The effects on the shellfish quality, sediment quality and biological communities in the vicinity and at distances further from the two outfalls are measured and monitored as part of an annual programme required by the resource consents.
