What I do feel passionately about is the dredging of the mouth of the Yarra River to allow the large ships to get to the docks. The bed of the Yarra is full of toxic nasties that we have dumped or allowed to accumulate over very many years. All these nasties will get stirred up but perhaps it will be worth it as they will be removed.
Ok, all this could be argued about by proponents and opponents. What cannot be argued about is that these toxic nasties are to be dumped in the middle of the bay. Authorities have admitted that it is purely a cost saving measure. It is cheaper to dump than treat, not that we can treat anyway.
Removing Cadmium, Mercury, Zinc, Lead, Arsenic and Ammonia from the bed of the Yarra must be good but dumping it in the middle of the bay surely is not good. Will we ever learn to stop wantonly abusing our environment? It always turns around and bites us on the bum.
Blue Wedges is fighting hard against the whole project.
