This incidence marks the latest twist in the long running scandal of the bulk and specialty chemicals industry player Bio-Organics. For the uninitiated, DWER is currently prosecuting the Oakford-based business Bio-Organics for causing groundwater contamination. The facility received at least 87 million liters of unauthorized industrial liquid wastes that entered the drain system and were led to the Serpentine River. Reportedly, Bio-Organics was licensed in 2002 as a composting facility and was only approved to operate green waste, however, it grew as a liquid-waste landfill that accumulated sewage, organic sludge, and industrial waste water.
Sources reveal that the regulator, DWER is already infamous in the industrial sludge treatment chemicals industry, for failing to monitor the business properly. Furthermore, Oakford residents are suspicious the DWER has not ensured the thorough investigation they were promised because of its own hand in a pollution scandal.
In other news, the Water Minister Dave Kelly recently announced a joint venture between a local engineering company Clough and a French industrial sludge treatment chemicals industry giant Suez to develop a wastewater recycling plant in northern suburbs of Perth. The new USD 262 million recycling plant will operate as a prominent unit in industrial sludge treatment chemicals industry that will turn treated sewage waste into drinking water.
