Boral launches mine website

boral community website

Boral is taking steps to keep the local community informed about the closure of the old Medway Colliery.

The building giant has launched a new website so that residents can find out more information regarding water testing results, historical reports and any other current and future news.

Back in 2014, Boral announced it would be closing the mine, but locals still have concerns to do with ongoing leakage, pollution in the Wingecarribee River and access to bore water.

Julian Brophy who's a member of the Mine Closure Working Group is welcoming the announcement but insists there's alot more work to be done.
