Authorities obtain quotes for disposal of drums stored at depot H J.L. J.L. “FRED” email@example.com dumped in the Lossie Drain over 15 months ago may soon be moved from storage at a Millicent depot. State Government authorities are in the process of obtaining quotes to move the unknown chemicals to an area where they can be disposed of appropriately. Some of the chemicals were accidentally spilled a week ago in the yard of the South Eastern Water Conservation Drainage Board. This led to a drainage board employee inhaling fumes and being taken to hospital as a precautionary measure. The premises and adjoining Wattle Range Council depot were closed for two hours and crews from the Country Fire Service, police, SA Ambulance Service and the State Emergency Service were called to the scene. SafeWork SA has also been investigated the incident. The chemicals - thought to be grease, oil, diesel and transmission fl uid - had been found dumped in a drain which leads to Lake Bonney. A drainage board spokesperson said staff often removed rubbish from drains. “Advice is sought from the EPA at any time that suspected chemicals are found within the drainage system,” the spokesperson said. “The drums were stored at the depot at the request of the Environment Protection Authority.” A spokesperson from the EPA said the drums were stored at the depot pending investigation and for evidence-related purposes. “The EPA is in the process of obtaining quotations for the drums to be moved off-site to an authority licensed disposal facility, as the drums are no longer needed for evidence purposes,” the spokesperson said. “We were initially pursuing a lead in this case, but it did not develop any further.” DRAIN DISGRACE: The dumped drums in the Lossie Drain west of Millicent in April last year. New recreational netting licences sought for lake NEW recreational netting licences could be issued for Lake George if a sub-committee of Wattle Range Council has its way. The fi shery has been closed to new entrants for more than 20 years, but the Lake George Management Committee and the fi sheries department staff have suggested new annual licences be issued at $200 per net. Council has endorsed the release of a discus- sion paper for community comment and will advise Fisheries Minister Leon Bignell of its support. Among the authors of the discussion paper were Mayor Peter Gandolfi , Cr Slim Reilly, retired Labor MP Bob Sneath, amateur fi sher Darryl Cox and Lake George Management Committee chairman Evan Pettingill. Under the proposal, no fi shing would be allowed in the Southern Lagoon - which is the smallest of the three lakes - or in the drainage channel connecting Lake George to Rivoli Bay. The committee believes the new annual licences will increase tourism and be an economic benefi t to the region. The proposed framework would ensure monitoring of fi sh stocks to ensure a sustainable fi shery. It is proposed that existing Lake George net fi shers would be obliged to pay the new $200 annual fee and would be limited to one net. Individuals can currently have one or two nets and the licence fee is $120 for three years. The Upper and Lower South East Recreational Fishing associations generally support the proposal.
