Parramatta River a Toxic Time Bomb
Fifty years of toxic chemical residue is sitting on the bottom of Sydney Harbour and the Parramatta River. It’s a toxic time-bomb and disturbing this sediment could worsen already dire pollution levels. And now sweeping developments along the shore of the River could be bringing more pollution to the already sullied waters.
With development pollution rife, the health of the river and plans to have it swimmable in less than 10 years could be jeopardised if developers don’t clean up their act.
