AGL Macquarie fined for river pollution

Brief: AGL Macquarie Pty Limited has been fined $15,000 by the NSW Environment Protection Authority after self-reporting a water polluting incident that occurred at its Bayswater Power Station near Muswellbrook NSW in February 2019.

The discharge of slurry from the power station’s lime softening plant resulted in water pollution that made its way to a nearby River Red Gum Endangered Ecological Community.

AGL has since commenced clean up and remedied the site in consultation with the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.
