Texas Fertilizer Explosion – Negligent Planning


Never trust a Right Wing Conservative Government to put community welfare above developers profits. A residential development should never have been allowed near this fertilizer plant in West, Texas.

Here in WA our State Government is proposing to build an industrial development on top of the Gnangara Mound, which is the biggest ground water reservoir north of Perth. An industrial accident there could have far reaching and even more devastating consequences.

According to a senior local government health inspector we spoke to recently, some local governments don’t send health inspectors to industrial areas at all anymore to check on mechanics and other industries to make sure that they are disposing of chemicals and toxic waste correctly. The other shocking comment was that some new and proposed industrial developments will use septic tanks rather than deep sewerage systems.

As we are so dependent on ground water in Perth, we strongly advice people to take a vested interest in this development.    See the wancrew.org website   http://www.wancrew.org/industry-plans-for-wanneroo.html
